Masons who build their houses safely

23 August 2019

Dorothei Gaza, frescă Dionysiou, 1547 INCertainly you don’t have the potential to salve the body of your neighbor, but you can salve their soul. And what greater loving-kindness is there than that which is offered to the soul?

Because, just as the soul is of greater value than the body, so any loving-kindness which is offered to the soul is of great value than that offered to the body.

So no-one can say: ‘I can’t afford charity’. Everybody can, depending on their strength and situation. Just make sure to keep your mind on the good you’re doing, so that you do it in full awareness, as we said.

Because people who act with awareness are recognized masons who build their houses safely.
