Do something. Blame no one. Make no excuses.


I was visiting my son Axel this week-end in Tallahassee, FL., when I saw a poster tapped on his wall with these slogans: Do something. Blame no one. Make no excuses.

We have within us, between our ears, a simple thing called conscience which teaches us there’s a right and wrong approach to life.

My understanding of Christian Spirituality based on the reading of “Guiding principles for a Christian Spirituality” by Michael Downey.


I understand Spirituality as a human quest to discover where we, human beings, are from, where we are going, our connection with each other, and in a large extent, our relationship with a Higher Power greater than ourselves. Therefore, Christian Spirituality is the global experience through time and space of this quest for meaning toContinue reading “My understanding of Christian Spirituality based on the reading of “Guiding principles for a Christian Spirituality” by Michael Downey.”
