As part of my one hour spent with the Lord in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, I have begun reading The Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis once again. Every week or so, I post an entry from his rich work for edification and spiritual reflection….

Imitation of Christ (1.3.6)
When people desire anything to an excessive degree, they immediately lose their peace of soul. The proud and avaricious are always perturbed; while the humble and the poor in spirit live in peace and contentment.

    Your balance of spirituality and intelligent reflection on the affairs of the world and politics is refreshing. My experience is many cannot mix the two. As though thinking, really analyzing what is and is not, is too “critical” or somehow sinful and not spiritual.
