A pipeline is hacked and boom, 5 hour waits for gasoline. People are panicked. It reminds me of the beginning of Covid lockdowns and toilet paper panic buying.
A year of masks and lockdowns has created a neurotic culture. Culturally, we won’t find peace soon.
But how can you find peace in the middle of this storm, or any other?
These are truly heavy times. The medicine won’t be easy.
“Peace is liberation from passions, which cannot be attained without the action of the Holy Spirit.” St. Mark the Ascetic, born in 360 AD.
Are you willing to fight your passions - (self-love, gluttony, lust, love of money, sadness, fear, and pride) - to find peace, with the help of the Holy Spirit of God, in any storm?
