We live in a fast pace world. We want faster internet connections. We drive faster than the speed limits. When we order something we want it delivered overnight. We want to lose weight in weeks or days. We want a pill to fix our illness. We multitask to try and get more things done quicker. We want the Mass to be over in 45 minutes, or in some cases, much less. We want God to respond immediately to our prayer request. This fast pace world we live in is not accident, there is an evil influence which can drive us farther away from God.
Take a few minutes to read Msgr. Charles Pope’s “There are no Quick Fixes in the Spiritual Life, as seen in a commercial“.
