Freedom by Richard Rohr

The primal freedom is the freedom to be who we really and truly are, the freedom to live in our full truth despite all circumstances.

That’s what great religion offers us. That’s what real prayer offers us. That’s why the saints could be imprisoned and not lose their souls. They could be put down and persecuted like Jesus and still not lose their joy, their heart, or their perspective.

Secular freedom is having to do what you want to do. Religious freedom is wanting to do what you have to do.
