We are not alone

Just to keep it real, here's some perspective on the problems All Saints Parish is having:

Does not every moment in the Passion write large some common element in the sufferings of our race? First, the prayer of anguish; not granted. Then He turns to His friends. They are asleep--as ours, or we, are so often, or busy, or away, or preoccupied. Then He faces the Church; the very Church that He brought into existence. It condemns Him. This also is characteristic. In every Church, in every institution, there is something which sooner or later works against the very purpose for which it came into existence. (Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer by C. S. Lewis)


  1. I found this to be a view I had never considered. I guess that is why we are encouraged to look for new enlightenment in familiar stories from the Bible.

  2. Anonymous, thanks for your comment.

    Yeah, we know what you mean. :-) Happens to us all the time.
