Isn’t life insanely absurd? There are some things only Jesus can fix. And by way of some rare moment we internalize what’s really important; that family – related and unrelated is everything! That love is paramount…and that "through our sorry record as sinners we have proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us." Even still, we are restored to where we ought to be, and for that we can be completely satisfied!
“It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”
