ultimate wager

Life in Religion is the ultimate wager on the existence of God. The Church should always be engaged in doing things that make no sense if God does not exist. This is the reason why I hold the Religious life in the highest esteem. Through the commonality of goods, the life of obedience and above all the commitment to shape life around the Opus Dei (that is, prayer), the monastic life models for all Christians what it means to live fully and abundantly, with and for Christ.”

The Most Rev’d Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
Foreword to: Anglican Religious Life 2016-17

I have been thinking about the above quote a lot.

One thought on “ultimate wager

  1. Are you thinking about a monastic life? I think I’ve asked this before and you said ‘no’ – I think. I can wait like everyone else to find out what you are feeling called to! ( Kerrie has to learn to be patient & maybe focus on what she is supposed to do doing 🙂 (I have been for ages 🥴- need courage maybe to take a risk )
