You know, they don’t tell you 40 hours is long and short all at the same time. Actually, in my case it’s just really boring but it’s a job and hence the main reason I haven’t updated here in a while.
We can spend 40 hours working. Professional athletes spend about that much time if not more training. Parents and kids will spend about that much time not talking to each other because of work, school, extracurricular activities, etc. Mass becomes a chore, another thing to be checked off the list of a million things to do. Or worse, gets completely dumped because some other secular activity takes precedence.
So where’s God in all this? How important is God in your life? And I don’t mean the externals. Or I should say, not just the externals (reading the Bible or lives of the saints or other spiritual writings, charitable work, etc.). God call all of us, not just a part of us.
Maybe that’s something that all of us need to work on.
