Perseverance

Like the Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts of America have fallen on hard times.  Human weakness manifests itself especially in the sexual field, as we know from the earliest times, the camp followers.  Then there were the harlots in times of peace, and now the pedophiles.  It doesn’t look good.

Moses did his best, and Christ summed it all up, but somehow there’s still always an interloper in the woodpile.  That is a human one.  But Christ understood all this, and hence the saying, “To err is human, but to forgive—divine.”

We struggle with our weaknesses, and sometimes nobody helps.  Some very effective solutions, like prayer, are often derided, perhaps because those who are helped by it are often unaware.  So don’t think it’s sissy to pray; the man who voluntarily took on a crucifixion prayed all the time.
