A Thought

“Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried.”  G.K. Chesterton

Jesus never promised us an easy path; in fact He taught that the difficult and dangerous path was the road less traveled but the one that would lead us where we need to go.  Too many, however, believe they have found an alternate path that is much easier and less challenging and have therefore scoffed at Jesus’ very words. 

The Holy Day season is no less the challenge especially for the Church.  To stay focused on what is really important with all the commercial distractions is probably what makes Christmas much more the challenge than Easter!  We must stay tuned into the only Promise we can count on, the only Promise that actually came to fruition, the only Promise that committed to showing us the way Home – before that Promise was destroyed by those who chose an alternate route. 

Our Lord has been given the “keys” to every door we need to enter through.  Only those who are committed to His path will find the way home.  We must not allow the world to distract us, and we must NEVER allow anyone or anything to convince us an easier way has been discoverd.  That way simply does not lead to the Promised Land.
