These are spiritual reflections growing out of devotional Readings. I sometimes put stray thoughts in Rumblings of Joy.

Is St. Gregory Watching Us?
"It often happens in the Church that some leaders, forgetting that they have been given oversight of their brothers and sisters for the sake of their souls, end up devoting the energies of their heart to secular causes. ... The reality of their situation is that they have found significance in being weighed down by external duties, and fidn it impossible to stop working. They rejoice in being weighted down by many heavy demands of the world, but neglect their inner life which ought to be the well from which they teach others. As a direct consequence of this, it is inevitable that the life of their people will languish." -- St. Gregory the Great from Pastoral Care
I have one comment to make. Busted.
