Two imperatives for contemporary priests.

Our lives as men of God in this contemporary world should not sway us from the two imperatives; 1. Go slowly and 2. Simplicity. The blatant reality of this life is that we have to recognized that there is no tomorrow, there is only now. Remember the most profound revolution in religious thinking is the Sabbath Day because it is the affirmation that the world does not own us, work is not our destiny and rest is the sacred part of our life.
