This week, as Christmas and final shopping days approached, we were struck when our readings took us to sixteenth century writer John of the Cross. He wrote, ‘The soul that is attached to anything, however much good there may be in it, will not arrive at the liberty of divine union. For whether it be a strong wire rope or a slender and delicate thread that holds the bird, it matters not, if it really holds it fast; for until the cord be broken, the bird cannot fly.’
