Trying not to Panic
I am listening to the news since I just got home. It is horrifying. How can 6 nuclear energy plants melting down not impact the whole world?
I was on one of the units today at work and was struck by the fact that the patients were sitting in the dayroom, glued to the television set - watching the coverage of Japan. My friend, who has the ability to tell them to knock it off, just questioned staff on the unit, but did not mandate that it stop. I cannot imagine how it could be beneficial for a patient in a psychiatric hospital to watch this all day long.
I had meetings at work all day long. I had one tonight. I only managed to get 4 miles in on the treadmill. I flew from one thing to another all day long. I have not got enough hours in the day for all I am trying to do.
And then in the middle of my day, I went to a nearby church for Eucharistic Adoration. It was like an island of paradise in my day.
There were eight other people in the chapel with me! At noon, on a weekday, eight people took time out of their days to go kneel with Our Lord.
Say what you will about the world going to hell in a hand basket, the fact that wherever I go to Adoration, there are others kneeling there with me tells me a different story. It is a good story.
The Truth. The objective Truth.
Thank You Lord Jesus.
