Hope long deferred makes sick the heart; but a Desire fulfilled is a tree of life.These words are from the book of Proverbs, though when I read them I always hear echoes of the English mystic Thomas Traherne. They remind us, as Traherne does, of the centrality of longing to authentic humanity. Who we are is constituted, as much as anything, by what we deeply desire; and disordered, unattainable desire leads to a heart sickness that cannot be cured.
Almighty and merciful God, of whose only gift it cometh that thy faithful people do unto thee true and laudable service: Grant, we beseech thee, that we may so faithfully serve thee in this life, that we fail not finally to attain thy heavenly promises; through the merits of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
So what is Points of Inflection about, anyhow?
