On the eve of the Epiphany...

I read this from Fr. Francis Hernandez and thought it was worth sharing:

...on the eve of the great feast of the Epiphany, we could ask ourselves in the depths of our hearts:  Why, at times, do I let my life follow the dim light of my whims, my fears, my comforts?  Why don't I always go to the light of the Gospel wherein lies my star and my future filled with happiness?  Why don't I take a step forward, and abandon what could be a situation of spiritual mediocrity?

Are you settling for the mediocre?  Are you standing in dim light?  Time to step forward, perhaps, and see what lies ahead.
