This has been on our frig for a year now and I wanted to share it with you…
WHO LIKES BORING?
From The Magnificat devotional October 2007
The Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, explains the logic of what can otherwise seem so contradictory: “Fulfillment does not lie in comfort, ease, and following one’s inclinations, but precisely in allowing demands to be made upon you, in taking the harder path. Everything else turns out somehow boring anyway. Only the person who recognizes an ideal he must satisfy, who takes on real responsibility, will find fulfillment. It is not in taking, not on the path of comfort, that we become rich, but only in giving.
