“Why do we spend our lives striving to be something that we would never want to be, if only we knew what we wanted? Why do we waste our time doing things which, if we only stopped to think about them, are just the opposite of what we were made for?”

He talks about finding God in all things in a sparking interview with Krista Tippett of the award-winning PBS programme, “On Being”. Listen to it at www.newpilgrimpath.ie.
