“There is a good rule in spiritual life, which we all forget continually,” he said, “that you must see more of your own sins than other people’s.” He remarked that the sum of human sin has been growing since Adam’s time, and we all share some of the blame. “So I think everyone must say to himself, ‘We must change our thinking.’ We cannot see what is in the heart of another person. Maybe he is a holy man, and I can see only that he is wearing a wrong jacket.”
Arvo Pärt in the New York Times Magazine, Sunday 17 October 2010
Lord Jesus Christ,
son of the living God,
on me a sinner.
P.S. Best. Weekend. In. A. Long. Long. Time.
