Monday Musings - Hearts Have Grown Cold
Our world, country and Church are in turmoil - all because we have turned our backs to God. We think we know better than He.
So prideful and self-centered have we become that we treat Him far too often as an unnecessary outdated crutch whom only weak and fearful people need. We prefer instant earthly pleasure rather than deferred eternal joy. We want to impose our will on Him rather than conforming ours to His.
But it is not too late to allow Him to change our hearts and to lead us into His eternal embrace. But we must make that choice. He will not force Himself on us, not even on His priests.
The way back is very simple - we need only to humble ourselves and place ourselves in His Presence. He remains imprisoned and ignored in the tabernacles of His Churches waiting for our visits and our love.
The fact that so many of His creatures have abandoned Him is the second greatest tragedy of our time - the first being the number of priests who no longer treasure His Presence here among us.
