In the June 29th issue of The Catholic Times (scroll down on the Living Faith page), there’s a little reflection that I wrote some time back. In fact, I had forgotten that I submitted it to the editor. As I reread it, fresh off vacation and with two sick-enough-to-go-to-the-doctor-later-today kids on my first day officially back in the saddle, I had to laugh.

I can’t help but wonder at myself. I’m so concerned about this little
gadget, this way of keeping in touch. Am I so concerned about my prayer
life? Do I spend as much energy making sure my Savior is with me always,
in my heart, in my thoughts, in my decisions? Am I able to approach my
spiritual life with the dedication I give this piece of plastic?

It’s not like *I* am the one who wrote that, really. And it’s just what I needed to read this morning, a not-so-subtle reminder about where my priorities need to be.
