“Do not ask, Why were the old days better than these? The wise do not ask such questions.” (Eccles. 7:10) Every age has its challenges — did you really expect yours to be any different? Blame your luke-warmness and lack of faith at least as much as the times. As the Roman Empire entered its sunset, St. Augustine observed, “Every day with Christ is a good day.” “But he did not know MY days” you say? Really? “When the days are good, be happy. When the days are evil, remember this, God has made the one as the other that mankind might know nothing of the future.” (Eccles. 7:14) We do not know the when of Omega, but we know the Who and that he loves us more than we love ourselves. Instead of trying to be your own father, let him be your Father.
