So when the priest mentioned in his homily one Sunday that he yelled out to a pack of runners charging down the street (in front of the rectory), “You’re going to die anyway.” I sat up and took notice. After all I was one of those health nuts. Yes exercise. Yes be as healthy physically as you are able. But exercise your spiritual life too. As you say and write: life is a balance

Could debate back to your priest, “Why pray, I’m going to die anyway?” “Why serve, I’m going to die anyway”. “Dear Priest, how is it fathomable that we could be disrespectful to the body which is the blessed temple which houses all that keeps us alive so we CAN pray and serve others”. “Dear Priest, riddle me that”.
