Peril and Opportunity in “Real Life”

“Real life” ought not to be an impediment to holiness.  There have been many authors and artists who worked as filing clerks, chefs, scientists, and groundskeepers.  The time at work was not stolen from creating their art. Rather, the work informed the art, and the art informed the work.

So must it be in our spiritual lives, so that the world speaks to us the truths of the faith, and that we may speak the truths of the faith to the world.
