The Ergonomic Soul

Praised be Jesus Christ!! Now and Forever!!
I think that many times the life of the faithful Christian is similar to doing a tango or a waltz. We have to follow Christ's lead and be obedient to the rules of the dance. Striking a balance between Love and Truth and between Mercy and Justice. I am so grateful to Our Lord for being a gracious teacher and for giving me examples in His saints to show me how best to strike that balance. I know that there are times recently both in blogging and in regular life that I want to call forth justice and then I have to reign myself in and call out for mercy. I don't know if it makes any sense to you but the way my simple mind works I find myself thinking of a dance.
No one ever said that practicing Christianity if we try to be faithful was easy. I think that to the soul that really tries to live faithfully the life with Christ it is not a ergonomic life. It is a constant balancing act within to submit to Our Lord and His Bride as we proclaim Love and Truth with zeal- at least it is for me. The life in Christ is not a easy road it is a challenge but what a wonderful challenge it is. Living for Christ and within the Mystical Body of Christ faithfully is not for the faint of heart- it requires courage. We are given that courage, perseverance, through the Sacraments and in prayer.
There is no such thing as ergonomics for the soul in Christ for the Cross of Jesus Christ is not ergonomically designed. The Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ is Divinely designed for salvation not comfort. So when I try to strike that balance between Truth and Love- between Mercy and Justice I have only to gaze upon the Cross of Our Lord. Upon the Throne of Mercy and Justice Our Lord pours out His Love and Truth from His Sacred Heart. There upon the Cross I find all the balance I need so that I may crawl onto my cross and follow His lead.
Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!!
