When a college student asked me this simple question, I told her my name. When that didn’t seem to satisfy her, and she repeated, “Who are you?” I thought she was asking about my profession. Then I somehow intuited that her question was a profound one and that she was looking for a deeper response
I needed to think for a second before giving the answer that I don’t often give: I am a consecrated member of Cafh. I am an Ordained member of Community.
She listened, and then asked, “Are you poor or rich?” Immediately I answered, “Not poor; I am not poor. I have everything I need to be happy, healthy and active in helping others. I am not rich; I have no car or bicycle, but I have these two legs that are good enough to take me to places that aren’t far away, and I have my imagination to fly far away. I have no children of my own, but I have taken care of so many children in schools that belong to the communities of Cafh, in different countries, that I have lost count of how many. Do you want to know more? Ask me any time.”
