Today, a priest of the Canons of St. Augustine, gave a great, short sermon. One of his main points was that one must not get so caught up with what is "urgent" so as not to do what is important.
The important, as the priest explained, must be following Christ and becoming holy. The urgent are the many things which impede our lives of prayer and meditation.
He asked us all to remember that there will always be "the urgent", things which seem important but are not. The only important thing is our relationship with Christ.
