In all time of our tribulation; in all time of our prosperity; in the hour of death, and in the day of judgment, Good Lord, deliver us.
What must the day of judgment be like. Have I lived too well; not well enough. Is there a balance that I've been able to keep while keeping the Spirit of Christ alive in all I do? Will there be anything at all that was pleasing in God's sight?
The Benedictine way teaches that we begin again and again until we truly live a Christ centered life...and then we begin again. I try to live every day with that wisdom and I will die trying. But I will have tried. That trying, I am certain, is indeed pleasing in God's sight.
