Midday Meditation: “The person afflicted with acedia, even if she knows what is spiritual good for her, is tempted to deny that her inner beauty and spiritual strength are at her disposal, as gifts from God.” – Kathleen Norris, Acedia & Me What is spiritually “good” for you today? Is it what you had planned, what others had planned for you? Is it easier to stick with those plans than to choose into whatever God is inviting you into today (yes, today! Even—and especially—in the midst of festivities or family or work or whatever your life today is holding!)? What might it be to use your spiritual strength to respond differently, to be more fully yourself in the midst of your life today?
