Measuring goodness

May 9, 2016

The other day I watched, “Chocolat” on DVD. From a Christian point of view it raises some interesting thoughts. The most significant line in the movie comes at the climax of the film where the young Catholic priest says:

We can’t go around measuring our goodness by what we don’t do, by what we deny ourselves, what we resist and who we exclude. I think we’ve got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create and who we include.
