Uncle Eddys E-mail -- April 14
Blessed Lydwina of Sheidam,
(entered heaven this day in 1433)
I just read your essay "Why Life Ought to Be a Vacation." It really blew me away – into an almost uncontrollable rage, that is. My dear niece, why are you trying to convince yourself that earth should be like heaven? This brief span of years we are given is meant to be an opportunity to fight for Christ’s Kingdom, not to settle into the mindless bliss of epicurean mediocrity. Earth is not heaven – get it? Earth is NOT heaven! You aren´t 15 anymore, but you have a lot to learn from Blessed Lydwina, who discovered her strange and wonderful vocation at that young age. She was a lot like you: pert, pretty, fun. Then she got into an ice-skating accident, broke a rib, and ran into complications during her recovery.
