No matter how daunting the road ahead might look — personally, professionally, or spiritually — all we have to do is focus on the current moment. This is particularly true for the spiritual life. Let’s be honest — most of us are a long way off from being saints (though we can be, and we are all called to be). It’s like standing at the base of a mountain, trying to see the peak through the clouds. The gap between where we are and where we need to be seems infinite. And, in many ways it is, because without God’s help, we can’t reach that peak.
