    Interesting. I would have liked to hear the writer parse out the phrase “It just does not work” a little more. Precisely what does he mean by “work”? By “not working,” he seems to mean “lonely, painful, unhappy, dying to self.”

    What if the saints and martyrs of the past had stopped on their road to further pain and suffering to say, “I’m sorry. This is just not working” and given up? No, there’s a cross for everyone.
