A seminarian friend came to visit last week. In the course of our conversation, he asked: "What are you afraid of? What scares you?"
I said, "That I won't enter by the narrow gate. That I'l die without ever having truly trusted or truly surrendered."
Part of what I mean by that is I'm afraid I won't love enough! Embrace enough, praise enough, notice enough, enjoy enough.
But I'm doing my best.
