Catholicism is a most excellent, healthy and fulfilling way of life. It is the way to happiness in Christ. Let us not forget that Christ died for his Church in order for his words of truth and sacraments of life to be passed on to all future generations, which makes the Church and her words of truth necessary.
In an instant, God can deeply change the way see things, transform our understanding, impart an entirely new outlook. When God takes possession of the soul, it knows it has found something great, something worth dying for, although this possession at the same time remains shrouded in mystery.
We often set off on an unceasing quest to distance ourselves from every anxiety, and thus begin to live in such a way as to constantly seek change for “the better.” There is a self-inflicted stress in such a life; a nervous movement toward some savored goal.
