Converging

Converge

“When there is a tendency to compartmentalize the spiritual and make it resident in a certain type of life only, the spiritual is apt gradually to be lost. When there is a tendency to integrate the spiritual and have all areas of life converge with the cross, the spiritual is apt gradually to grow.” – Flannery O’Connor
