I was praying the Liturgy of the Hours this morning, and as most days, certain phrases jump out at me, confirming I am on the right path. Today it was the Gospel Antiphon: “Let the dead bury their dead. But you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” (Luke 9:60)
I am tired. I have been fighting now for years, and I’m not saying I am tired of fighting. I am tired of “fighting against”. I have been fighting against the current of a Legion that is ill. All I want now is to “fight for” something, to have a clear objective, to know what I am fighting for, to experience that freedom of knowing I am no longer submitted to a yoke of slavery and I have been set free to “serve my brothers and sisters through love”.
From today on my only contact with my legionary superiors will be to insist and encourage them to do their part in the canonical process needed to be gain the dissolution of my vows and incardination in my new diocese.
“Brothers and sisters:
For freedom Christ set us free;
so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.”
(Gal 4:30, 5:1)
