You had met him two years ago at the California Endowment Center hosted by UCLA, and you remember the level of deepness he has in his love, unconditional for people. He has been inspired by Jesus, Matthew chapter 25, 34-40
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Golden wisdom from father Gregory Boyle.
Tears were streaming down your face because you realized that you are exactly where you are designed to be.
Earlier that day, you told Momi that you had spoken to a man from India who believed all religions are valid. You told him that you agreed. You told him that God had his heart broken into millions of pieces and we each received a piece, called a soul, and within each piece is the truth and the illusion. It is up to us to discover the difference.
Tears streamed down your face because you realize that you are looking into your hero’s eyes. Through his voice, the truth resonated and you felt like Naruto when he had discovered how his teacher talked him up, believed in his heart that he was a good person even if other kids thought he was lesser and the nice charming teacher was the shit talker, who wanted to use Naruto to unseal the Forbidden scroll. Because you heard your mission–the universal one through his share.
You met Allison, the woman in charge of the expanding network of people who want to follow in Father Gregory Boyle’s steps by creating sustainability. You realize that he tours because he is the visionary, the way you are the visionary and mouthpiece to your organization. You see your future and purpose through Father Gregory Boyle.
Earlier today, Sherman, your buddy, told you about CT Fletcher, My Passion, and made the remark that he admired this man for pursuing his passion like an obsession, and he saw it in you too. He encouraged you to keep pushing, keep going.
