Like Christ in Everything but Our Lies?

In a must read commentary from Catholic Culture entitled Lies, Union and Prayer, we are challenged to tackle the fundamental obstacle to a life of holiness: our reluctance to root out and forsake the lies in our lives.

The examination covers much ground, including God’s demand for radical detachment from the ideals and goods of this world, the need for sacrifice, developing a counter-cultural mindset and lifestyle, and the vital necessity of personal Christian prayer.

Given that it’s an exceptionally short exposition, it packs a good punch. Considering we have arrived today at Palm Sunday, and that we face Holy Week, this is a timely meditation which, if taken seriously, can help us prepare for very significant days ahead.
