All Hallows

Tomorrow is All Hallows (All Saints Day). That makes today All Hallows Eve -- Hallowe'en.

As has been typical in this country, the Holy Day has been commuted because it falls on Saturday (too close to Sunday). The problem with this is that commuted makes it sound like a prison or death sentence. "Whew! Glad that one got commuted!"

That is what makes for spiritual laziness. Yes, I'll admit that it is convenient. But has anyone noticed that the religious orders that are actually flourishing are the ones that make the most demands on its followers?

It's the same with lay people. People want to be challenged despite their laziness.
