I wrote about how both God and Satan work incrementally.
Not so long ago I came upon this quote in the book, Song of the Sparrow by Murray Bodo, OFM:
We drift away from God so easily; not fast but easily. And before we know it, we are far downstream from God trying desperately to break our acceleration and reverse our direction.
Then the other day a friend sent this from YouTube across my Facebook feed…
As a Benedictine, I/we are called to be pray-ers in the world. And I do pray–for people by name, for groups and their causes, for our near-sighted government, and for our world where the infection of evil is spreading.
I don’t know that I can pray hard enough, fast long enough, suffer deep enough to even slow the momentum of decline…I can only hope that the Lord hears us, and helps us.
