I’ll be mostly checked out from the Internet through the end of the year, so I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. If you’re celebrating another holiday, I’d like to wish you a happy one of those, too.
2015 was one of the most challenging years of my life in a lot of ways, but in the true spirit of Catholicism, CS Lewis, and The Loving Diet, I am realizing how important it is for illness, sadness, and crisis to exist as vehicles to drive us to wholeness.
None of these things have pushed my life “off track.” In fact, it is through these things that I am becoming the person I am supposed to be. If anything, it’s pain and suffering that push us back on track: toward God, toward community, and toward living righteously.
Here’s hoping the end of this year and the beginning of next brings you closer to God and (through that) in deeper communion with the life you’re living and the people in it.
