In the good old pre-Vatican II days, we were taught that no matter how bad things got in the Church, that we would address the wrongs charitably and where we couldn't change anything, we would bear our sufferings silently. Oh, how I long for those days!
I think the social media generation of Catholics are addicted to their whining and use it as therapy or self medication. Grow up! We need to be like the greatest generation who lived through the Great Depression and World War II and didn't whine about this, that or the other.
The Serenity Prayer can help and many need a big dose of it:
Serenity PrayerGod grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
(Although known most widely in its abbreviated form above,
the entire prayer reads as follows...)
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
