There’s an article coming on this soon but I right now I’m working up a presentation and paper for school so it’ll have to wait. In the meantime, I’m going to be brief:
Devotion is not just for clergy. Devotion, deep, fervent, passionate devotion that consumes one’s whole being is for lay people too.
I keep seeing this idea coming up that the building blocks of our traditions, of faith, of devotion are things that should only be reserved for clergy and that’s just nonsense. Clergy are important but a devout, on fire for the Gods laity is even more so.
