The following excerpts were taken from an article by Rev. Ronald Rolheiser, OMI, that was written several years ago.
-Robs us of the simple capacity to be in the moment.
-Can constitute an obstacle to spiritual growth and holiness.
-Is a form of violence exercised upon time, an attempt , as it were, to make God's time our own, our private property.
-We exercise a form of greed and gluttony.
God didn’t make a mistake in creating time. He made enough of it.
When we hurry too much and for too long we end up doing violence to time, to ourselves and to our blood pressure.
