“A Gift of Imperfection”

“Beauty and harmony are things we can all achieve in our lives., but perfection is not⎯that’s reserved for God alone. Imperfect musicians who still make such beautiful music together remind me that I don’t need to be a perfect saint, a perfect monk, or a perfect anything else. I just need to concentrate on making music with my fellow saints in the monastery and in school, music that isn’t perfect⎯only beautiful.”
