Yahweh, who has the right  to enter your tent, or to live on your holy mountain?  The man whose way of life is blameless, who always does what is right, who speaks the truth from his heart.


(Psalm 15:1-2)













The objectives of religious life

can be framed in the simplest terms:

to achieve

a heightened awareness

of the divine mysteries

that lie beyond

human experience,

to acknowledge

the truth and grandeur

of these mysteries

in prayer,

and the chart a personal life

that sharply accords

with these mysteries

or, as Micah put it:

"To do justly,

to love mercy

and to walk humbly

with Thy God."
