Out of Control by ProQuest


While I understand the desire for control in the face of suffering, there is in this desire a dismissal of some important human depths, and the absence of any sense of the fullness of life as a mystery-not in the usual sense of mystery as something difficult if not impossible to understand, but rather in the sense of mysterion, the sacramental gift. The choice is between hope and hopelessness, and while Christianity is not the only tradition to understand that our lives are grounded in a mystery we are meant to live, that they are not a form of property, the end of the secular desire to control our lives completely is a surrender to despair.
