Spiritual Adventure

George Bernanos

 

 

I am no George Bernanos, but what the French novelist said about the condition of a Christian writer conforms to my own experience:

 

“If the good Lord really wants you to bear witness, you must expect to work a lot, to suffer a lot, to have ceaseless doubts about yourself, whether success or in failure. Because, seen in this way, the writer’s profession is no longer a profession: it’s an adventure, and above all a spiritual adventure. And all spiritual adventures are Calvaries.”
