‘Someone is shouting:
Clear a path in the desert.
Make a straight road
for the Lord our God.‘ (Isaiah 40:3)
You are blazing a trail.
You are preparing a way.
You are finding things out
and going through an ups-and-downs process
so that you can for others’ sake
clear away a lot of debris
and have on hand
the tried -and-true treasures of the Church.
This is the fruit of your catechetical training
and of your decades of knowledge of Christian doctrine
that started building in your teens
all those years ago.
So don’t be discouraged.
your time for being taken seriously will come,
and be instantly able to be assimilated..
