I have hit the discovery of all discoveries! It was brought upon by the wisdom of a fellow aspirant. We are all indeed a massive amount of dust bunnies who are congregating for mass. We have fluttered all over the world living various lives before coming here with the Salesians. I am not sure we are massive, but there is no doubt we are somewhere when we are there. Now, while the dust bunnies being refered to initially were all hiding in a massive clump under a bed, we too are in a sense hiding. What in the world, though, are we hiding from? We are hiding from the fact the we indeed, might need to be formed. We are hiding from the fact that there is indeed, not good things about ourselves. We are hiding from the fact that we indeed, need to face our lives and what God has given us in them. In the same sense, we still have congregated together to celebrate Jesus.
In case you are still confused…here is the story. I was up in the hallway talking with a fellow aspirant, when another fellow aspirant was trying to fill in the sentence “there is a massive amount of dust bunnies ______ under my bed.” I proceeding to say “congregating.” She exclaimed “YES” and continued to get a swifer to go clean her floor. Before you know it, she is saying that they are having mass under the bed. Thus…the humor of the day.
I have determined, in all our dust bunny sides of ourselves, that we really need to take better care of each other. We need to be able to trust each other more, know each others boundries, know when to tell people you need space, and such. Basically, it is a general we need to be comfortable with each other if we are going to make certain things work. We don’t have to be great friends. We just need to have each others trust and each others backs. This way, we can deal with the dust bunnies and celebrate Jesus together.
Peace, happy cleaning of your room (outer room, and inner room. material, and immaterial)!
