Nothing Wrong With Being Normal

Fr. Dwight posted this morning one of the best things I've read in a LONG time.  You really ought to go read and reflect on his entire post.  Here's a snippet:

He [Satan] hates ordinary Catholics who work hard, pray hard, laugh hard and who love God, love life, love one another and live life to the full. This ordinary, grace-filled natural life of faith is what he hates with a passion. I call  it 'supernatural normalcy' because these are the saints that fill our pews. These are the people of God. These are the ones who live out their faith best they can in the ordinary ups and downs of life. They try hard. They make mistakes, they go to confession with open hearts.
Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner, and give me the grace to be ordinary.

There is a big difference between not hiding one's light under a bushel, and shining it square into the eyes of all one meets like a KGB interrogator.
