Moral intelligence


There are different ways of being intelligent, of being awake. Some people are gifted mathematically and philosophically. Some others are gifted with emotional intelligence. Then there is something that might be called moral intelligence. What is this? Sometimes we call it depth or wisdom or character. Whatever its name, moral intelligence is a sensitivity to the deeper contours within life. Where does it come from? I suspect, in most cases it is in part the product of a certain kind of suffering and humiliation - Fr Ron Rolheiser
