"Men will surrender to the spirit of the age. They will say that if they had lived in our day, faith would be simple and easy. But in their day, they will say, things are complex; the Church must be brought up to date and made meaningful to the day's problems.
"When the Church and the world are one, then those days are at hand because our Divine Master placed a barrier between His things and the things of the world.
"A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him saying, 'you are mad, you are not like us.'"
St. Anthony of the Desert
Painting: The Christian Martyrs' Last Prayer

That time has sadly come. So many of us are struggling to live, work and love amongst mad people who call us mad. May we find refuge in the mercy of His Holy Wounds.
