The Pleasure of His Company

“All the unhappiness of men”, the 17th Century French mathematician, Blaise Pascal, famously noted, “arises from one simple fact, that they cannot sit quietly in their chamber”. We’re living in a generation of stress, and it’s not only in the world; it’s also in the Church. There’s a tremendous pressure that’s coming down upon every person and no one is exempted from it. Unfortunately, Christians are some of the most worn-out people on the planet and that’s a shame, especially when we’ve been offered supernatural rest. The key to all this? Return to the simplicity of your devotion to Christ. Return to prayer, solitude, and intimacy.
