It seems to me that our society has an increasingly difficult time facing reality. That’s a very unhealthy situation, as I myself know from experience. Could it be that most of us can’t find the inner resources to deal with it? Isn’t it really about the loss of control, facing our own mortality in many disguises, not bearing the pain until it transforms us, and not trusting deeply enough that the Love of God is the greatest force in the universe? How wonderful would it be if we set about on a mission of inner enrichment of ourselves and others through connection, contemplation, creativity, compassion, spreading the faith, listening to the stories of those who have walked through hell and come out reborn on the other side, and sharing our own stories of struggle and triumph?
