Although I picture sanctity robed in the gentle manner of St. Therese of the Child Jesus, I think I need to find another saint to show me how I can tame sarcasm, anger and cynicism. Is there some sort of “Way” for me? St. Jerome may be my man, since he won a halo despite his reputation for fury. I haven’t read anything, however of his having tempered his temper or tamed his tantrums. Perhaps, my best bet is to be myself and allow life to wear my down like a rock in a tumbler chipping away turn after turn. The prospect hurts! I know, the saints “Count it all joy!” Turning up the prayer can’t hurt. I’m a candidate for your prayer list, wouldn’t you say? I change very slowly, so this blog probably won’t witness any miracles. I’m open to one, though!
