Broken Things

But the fruit of the Spirit is...self-control...against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)

"Things broken must be mended;
Things running away with us must be curbed;
Things awry in us must be set straight.
What we may have to face in a culture in which self-control is too often seen as self-destructive, is that none of that happens by accident. It requires discipline - conscious, honest, continuing discipline...in some way that is honest and real." (The Rule of Benedict: Insights for the Ages, Joan Chittister)
