I am continually reminded, amidst the various “challenges” (or in reality, blessings) that one faces studying abroad in a place like Greece, of some very good pastoral advice that I received via a homily:
Abide in the gospel. Do not abide in disturbances of everyday life, but abide in the Gospel.
This advice came back to mind as I was beginning to worry a bit about some paperwork that needed to be done, and I realized how I was dwelling in this problem, when I am, in fact, called to dwell in the Gospel...in the Way of Christ.
Anyway, just a thought from a wise priest that helped me in the midst of everyday life!
with much love,
