Begejstring og behovet for udholdenhed

I en tid, hvor vi glæder os til den euforiske begejstring ved Verdensungdomsdagen i Sydney, kan det være sundt at høre Pave Benedikts ædruelige ord: ”Initial enthusiasm is easy. Afterward, though, it is time to stand firm, even along the monotonous desert paths that we are called upon to traverse in this life – with the patience it takes to tread evenly, a patience in which the romanticism of the initial awakening subsides, so that only the deep, pure Yes of faith remains.” Pave Benedikt den 16., Jesus of Nazareth, p. 262.
