Daily Spiritual Inspiration – Today's Message

 

 

Joy and Laughter


Today I am able to joke with God and about God. I am able to laugh at me swinging incense at a candlestick - and then swinging the incense at the Bishop!

I smile at the determined seriousness of acolytes who receive communion while at the same time sticking chewing gum under the arm rail. I chuckle at the embarrassment of the baptism family when the baby pulls the plug out of the font and the holy water drains away.

Today I am able to laugh at God and the Church - it joyously reflects human imperfection, but at the same time reminds me of God's glory.


From "Say Yes To Life"
By Father Leo Booth

Overcoming Rigidity


People who have strong likes and dislikes find life very difficult; they are as rigid as if they had only one bone. Such people cannot bend, and if they are compelled to bend, they can only break.

We can all learn to develop resilience. We can make ourselves like that Japanese doll called the daruma doll, which has a rounded base and is weighted in such a way that when you push it over it springs back up. Yu can hold it down as long as you like, but as soon as you take your hand away, it jumps back up again. This is the kind of resilience that we can all cultivate. Whenever life tries to knock down people who have developed this precious quality of resilience, they are able to spring back; they have lost every trace of rigidity.

Daily meditation will help us overcome our rigidity.
