I know that a lot of what I write about comes from the Christian (and hopefully Catholic) point of view.
Believe me there was a time when that perspective drove me bananas.
All I can say is that at this time in my life (early 50s) it seems to "work" for me.
Do I expect the world to suddenly wake up and start praying "Hail Mary's and Our Father's and going to confession to an ordained priest once a month and living in a "state of grace" 100% of the time?
Receive the Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ faithfully at each Holy Mass?
I could go on.
Did any of what I just said there send you into a fit of something?
That's on you my friend.
I've got one "agenda" going on with this website and what ever else I may be writing on these subjects:
Encouraging people to seek help for their mental illnesses and come out of that hole they've been living in and live a life worthy of their "calling".
Here, I'll finish this post with a little poem to let it dither into the background:
A Christian Poem of "Realization"
by Daniel A. Popovich
I have no real clue
Where you have been my friend
Whether in your "real-life" travels
Or in your minds dead-end
You see if all that meandering
Is merely in your head
You mustn't be afraid
To leave behind the "dead"
We're walking in the light today
Not yesterday nor t'morrow
There is no fear
No anxious thoughts
No devastating sorrow
Where is it that we're "going"?
Good question you may ask.
To meet a Friend and talk with Him
He gives us all our tasks!
We are The Church you've heard of
We carry on The Way
Regardless of one's 'bility
To offer work or pay
Just come and sit and listen
No one will bother you
The Master speaks to no one
Unless they want Him to
He waits He is so patient
His friends they do abound
He'll find the lost and lonely
And let them "hang around"
His workers are His Voice you see
Right here this day in sight
One Word of His is Freedom
One Look from Him is Light
