Okay, that’s heavy. Let me take GK Chesterton’s words to heart — “Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly”

    “…For whether it be a strong wire rope or a slender and delicate thread that holds the bird, it matters not, if it really holds it fast; for until the cord be broken, the bird cannot fly.”

    Wow! Great post, Dr. Neal. I’m taking these words to heart.

    Hey, have I ever shared with you that I was Baptized on Dec. 14th?! After that beautiful celebration of the Baptism of The Lord yesterday at the Cathedral and now this snippet of wisdom from St John of the Cross, I’m hearing the Father inviting me again to Himself. With Jesus, may he increase and I… You know what!

    Love this post and it is so true. My attachments are not to material things very much, but they certainly are to things like “succesful ministry event”, “getting lots of things accomplished every day”, “always being able to serve others even if I am sick and can hardly get up.” As your wise confessor said, always the focus is on “me”, not on letting go and turning things over to God.
