cecilia bedelia vs. the snooze button
In the spiritual life it is so easy to hit the snooze button on a more dedicated life of prayer. On alarm clocks the snooze button lets us pretend we are setting a goal by setting the alarm knowing that we can also just keep hitting the snooze button to advance that goal just a little bit farther into the future.
I wish I wasn’t so blasted addicted to my snooze button. It was good to be reminded how this little habit can creep into other areas of my life, especially with the Liturgical New Year just around the corner. Looks like I’ll be adding ‘eliminating the snooze button’ to my list of liturgical resolutions!
