  • Advent Reflection: The Beatitudes and Acedia

    Maybe it's just that Christmas has become too commercialized, robbing it of its promise of quiet joy and peace at the Lord's coming. But perhaps part of it is that as we look forward towards this season of "Joy to the World," we find ourselves touched, not by angels, but by acedia— that spiritual affliction that the Fathers of Church talked about so many centuries ago, a condition that convinces us that the whole business of being joyful just takes too much energy.
