THE PARALYSIS OF FEAR

Fr Jim Cogley


The following is a quote by Harry Truman the 33rd president of the United States: ‘The worst danger we face is the danger of being paralyzed by doubts and fears. The danger is brought on by those who abandon faith and sneer at hope; by those who spread cynicism and distrust and try to blind us to our great chance to do good for all mankind.’ It has been said that fear is the darkroom where all our negatives are developed. It’s interest paid in advance on a debt you may never owe. Fear has the effect of undermining faith in yourself, in others, and in God. It always exists at the edge of our comfort zone and unless we put courage in front we can never make progress towards becoming who we really are.
