Simple Catholic Snapshots
- The barrage is relentless
- Slowly and imperceptibly we are dying
- We must find a way out
- We must become the silence
There’s an old story about how best to cook a frog. The parable points out that if you throw a frog into a pot of boiling water, the frog will instantly react and jump out of the pot, thus saving his life. If, on the other hand, you place the frog into a pot of warmish water, the frog is happy enough and stays put. The parable continues that if you then start to slowly raise the temperature of the water, even to boiling, the frog will not notice and eventually will meet his demise.
So goes the story of a frog, so goes the story of our souls…
