St. Anthony of Egypt and Broadband Access
Our priest at morning Mass on Monday gave a nice homily about the importance of "getting away from the city" and taking time everyday to be alone with God. He said we needed to somehow find a way to have our own little time in the desert away from the city. It seems that everything in my life is constructed to take me further into the city and to increase my involvement- beeper, cell phone, social media of the internet etc. Now that Verizon is going to carry the iphone, I am even considering upgrading from my ipad touch which has only wi-fi connect-ability. This would give me instantaneous access to email, the net, news, fb, my blog etc. Will this enhance my walk with God or detract from it? What would St. Anthony of the Desert say? I think I already know.
