I happened upon a quote today from Krishna Muhrti (whom I am not familiar with), but it “resonated with me”, as people have put it in the past few years… although, more truthfully, it felt like someone had punched me in the gut or smacked me upside the head. It’s not anything that any reader of the Book of Wisdom wouldn’t have grappled with and come to accept. And it’s not anything that we haven’t come to experience in our faith walk. As one of my beloved priests of years gone by used to say, Catholics are counter-cultural, or they’re not really practising their faith. So, without further ado, here is the quote:
“It’s no achievement to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”
Ain’t that the Truth. Blessed are you, misfits, losers and outcasts. Jesus loves you.
