From September 12, 2023

was searching for God through my intellect…reading, studying, probing. It was not until I encountered people on the peripheries of life—the homeless in Philadelphia, Detroit, and Los Angeles, the migrants from El Salvador, Honduras, and Mexico, the refugees in camps in Uganda and Kenya, the people dwelling in massive slums in East Africa, the lepers in Brazil and Jamaica, the people living on a mountain of garbage in The Philippines, the untouchables in India, people suffering from cruel injustices and barbaric violence Haiti, children dying of malnutrition around world—only after encountering these beautiful people did my search for God make the migration from my head to my heart.
