Doing what we can with what we have...

Fr. Longenecker wrote an insightful article that resonates with Plain Catholic living and we feel offers encouragement to everyone in these troubled times.

Opting for Saint Benedict in an Ordinary Parish

Benedictines don’t opt out or hunker down waiting for an apocalypse. They are simply realistic and understand that when things reach a particular state of societal breakdown, there is an accompanying breakdown in rational discourse and conscientious dialogue. Where there is social anarchy, there is philosophical anarchy.
Realizing this, Saint Benedict and his followers down the ages have simply gotten down on their knees, rolled up their sleeves, and gotten to work doing what they can, with what they have, where they are. Without grumbling or being paranoid and apocalyptic… they simply get on with it... 
Like Saint Benedict we’re not trying to change the whole world. We’re simply doing what we can with what we have where we are.
