“Once man has lost the fundamental orientation which unifies his existence, he breaks down into the multiplicity of his desires; in refusing to await the time of promise, his life-story disintegrates into a myriad of unconnected instants. Idolatry, then, is always polytheism, an aimless passing from one lord to another. Idolatry does not offer a journey but rather a plethora of paths leading nowhere and forming a vast labyrinth.”

-Pope Francis, Lumen Fidei

    Not to make light of this intense metaphor but it seems to describe my desk. That is why my prayer before I begin is, “Lord, help me focus.” Indeed my prayer for my life is, “Let me place myself in Your presence” and my best advice for my children is, “Ask God to put you where you belong.”
