I got an email today telling me this weblog is listed on Blogs4God and was reminded I might actually post something. I had an okay advent though I became overwhelmed very early on by the stress. God has shown me a lot recently that my attitude towards money and possesions needs a lot of work. I also did not persevere as a I would have liked in a disciplined spiritual life. But Grace breaks in anyway. My inability to get through a Classic of Western Spirituality, or to get through the mall without becoming enthralled by capitalism doesn't change the fact that the indescribable gift of God in Human flesh is, so to speak, unreturnable. Towards the end I was reading St. Therese of the Child Jesus and Isaiah and that helped.
