The Church was thinking about how it feels to confront the emotional damage of a lifetime that is sitting unnoticed in your conscious….Borrowed from Fr Thomas Keating – a Trappist Monk
I had believed that I had never observed Lent. If the object is the above, in fact, I have observed it one day at a time since December 4, 1984. In AA we call this wonderful process an inventory. Then we have to share it with God and another human being. We do this because we simply can not recover from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body until we tell someone ALL of our life story and admit our wrongs….then correct those wrongs. Our belief is that our REAL purpose it to fit ourselves to be of maximum service to God and the people about us.
A dear friend told me not long ago that I was more Catholic than most of the Catholics he knows. Could this be the reason why?????????
The truth will set you free….but first it makes you miserable……..stolen from a poster at the Hub of the Plains in Lubbock…December 1984
