“It seems that in times of crisis we negotiate and plead with God. We become transactional. We fervently promise to do this if God gives us that. Yet, how quickly we forget. We look at our side of the bargain as being something that can be done at some time in the future whenever we have the time or inclination, whereas we are insistent that God give us what we want NOW.”

(Fr Themi Adamopoulo of Paradise 4 Kids)
