I get overwhelmed by the pressure of it all, saddened by the consumerism, frustrated by the greed, and worried about spending the money.
Tis' the Season to completely freak out.
But this year, I felt myself compelled to seek out an old friend, a book, actually, by a personal hero of mine, Dorothy Day. The book is The Long Loneliness, and I picked it up this morning and started re-reading it.
"We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community." --Dorothy Day
If I stay with these pages, I think I'll make it to the Epiphany in fine form. Thank you Dorothy.
