The Mystery of Misery January 17, 2010

Filed under: Classics — Shanna @ 10:31 pm

“Dear little Swallow,” said the Prince, “you tell me of marvellous things, but more marvellous than anything is the suffering of men and of women.  There is no Mystery so great as Misery.” (from The Happy Prince by Oscar Wilde)

This week, we have witnessed the misery of people in Haiti.  We’ve seen images, we’ve heard stories.  And we have opportunities to give out of our abundance to help ease that suffering.  I hope we will.
