"This, then is our desert:
to live facing despair,
but not to consent.
To trample it down under hope in the Cross.
To wage war against despair unceasingly.
That war is our wilderness.
If we wage it courageously,
we will find Christ at our side.
If we cannot face it,
we will never find him."

I heard this on the car radio, coming back from my last mass this morning.
Forgive me if I include it here as a kind of tribute to the increasing frivolity of Anglican Church life....... wrong notes deliberately sounded?
Still, it made me laugh out loud.
