An Attack Of The Grumps

Fr. Longenecker has an excellent post on the grumps and iritability which can pounce as Lent starts to take hold...

"...I believe when we really try to pray more we start stirring up some of the smelly, mucky stuff that has drifted down to the bottom of the pond that is our life.

"The Holy Spirit wants that stuff to get stirred up so it can float to the top and be skimmed off at confession. The process, however, makes us grumpy, irritable, confused and spiritually restless."

Chrysostom, I think, said, "When you strike a snake with a stick it rises and hisses."

Thanks so much for this post. Now I know why I'm out of sorts today.
