The world as we know is a complex and complicated place. It is full of paradoxes and contradictions. But it is also full of beautiful truths. In the movement through the storms and the uncertainty of life how can we find this beautiful truth? We find the truth, god's truth and indeed our own truth by having a care for justice, by acting with integrity and by helping those around us to find their way to God's holy mountain......Margaret Theresa Naughton
