Picture Perfect : Odd One Out
This was taken in 1999 as we walked the st. James Way. Its caption in the album reads, “A few of the thousands we saw; this one kindly posed for the picture!”
Was it curious about the two peculiar humans walking by, odd ones out also? We learned a lot on this walk, one of the most important being that by putting one foot in front of another, what starts out as not much eventually adds up and amounts to something.
In the world today, people who try to be fundamentally good in all freedom may seem like odd ones out, but it can have a great effect on society. We just need a few more to turn their heads and look this way.
“The penitent is not the sinner who sits in dirt and wraps himself up in a sack, but the man who stops sinning, even though he wears festive clothes and scent and (even though he) sings to the music of flutes and trumpets; besides, do joy and finery not suit to him who has changed his life?”
