Also, sometimes, the sun streaming in from the windows in the bedroom enlightens my day — until I get up to close the blinds.
I’m sure some crazy, mad, meaningful words could (in theory) enlighten my day, but the best I can come up with at the moment comes from a weird British show called “Father Brown.” It was one in which (what a shock!) the local priest liked to solve mysteries. And one holy day, he said this most enlightening thing:
“Our Lord asks for chastity, poverty, and obedience. He never said anything about sobriety.”
Amen, brothers and sisters. Amen. Anyone for the pub?
