The Bible, that wonderful Catholic book, is an awfully good spectator at the events that set Israel against God. It may be God’s will that we be spectators to repetition, and there will be no cave in which to hide or mountain top the enemy cannot find. Living off the grid, the profane expression for the catacombs, is unlikely in the modern era, though not completely out of sight, i.e., Catholics living in China.
Our work is to love history, not sack it. All of it is present to God the Father. Each of us works a little thread into the tapestry and retires. We can make the tapestry story more beautiful. Let all else takes its course as we follow the Man home.
