Being people of courage and hope 
does not mean not feeling afraid; 
 rather, courage is the willingness 
to stay open to our fear and our rawness, 
 without running away.

None of us is courageous all the time.  
 With fear we embark on most journeys.  

Courage appears when we are willing 
 to sit at the edge of our pain 
 and look at it face to face.

Sister Stanislaus Kennedy

"He that has light within his own cleer brest 
may sit i' th' center,
and enjoy bright day;  
But he that hides a dark soul.....
Himself is his own dungeon."
