Prayer Is Not Enough
I just ran into a priest who is a diabetic. He eats sugar regularly, desserts and muffins and all. Here is his daily program: He gets up and eats. Then he exercises to bring down the sugar. Then he eats more sugar because the exercise brought sugar level down enough. Then he naps. Then he swims for more exercise so that he can eat more sugar. He has been saying the Holy Office his whole life. Amazing what prayer cannot change. I am glad that I am not alone in having issues with change and better life style.
