Fork in the Road

Fork in the Road
By: Eric Gajewski

Job 22:15
Dost thou desire to keep the path of ages, which wicked men have trodden?

Psalms 26:11
Set me, O Lord, a law in thy way, and guide me in the right path

Two brothers set out one day on an unfamiliar path in the country side in order to reach their end which was another family member’s home.  Both had sufficient food and gear for this trip.  Both had shoes and were in good health upon their start.  Both set out on this early morning with a hope to arrive at their goal.  As the day progressed (by late morning) they came upon a fork in the road.  One path to the right very narrow and seemingly dark. It appeared to be the more dangerous path but nevertheless the sign read that the town of the Home they were traveling to was 10 miles shorter than the road to the left.  The path to the left was wide with seemingly no obstacles.  It seemed the safer path by all estimations.  Here is where the two brothers decided to go their own way.

The eldest brother chose the road to the right and the youngest the left.  The trees were tall on the path to the right cutting virtually all the suns light out.  There were bushes upon this tight path with thorns that dug deep into the man’s legs as he walked.  There were noises from deep inside this narrow road and yet the eldest son did not retreat.  He pressed onward knowing this road was shorter and more direct although seemingly more difficult.  Yet, the youngest son set out merrily upon the wide path with no worries or difficulties.  It was seemingly very easy at first.

By late afternoon after much toil and sweat the eldest boy came upon a river alongside of this road.  He stopped to refresh himself wilst the youngest boy ran out of refreshments and along his wide path he could find no water to refresh his tired legs. The eldest boy sat to think how his path was beginning to seemingly pay off.  What beauty seen and what virtue acquired from having chosen the more seemingly difficult path.  He came unto his end by early evening and was welcomed into the Home he sought.  Wilst the younger brother by late evening came upon an unforeseen cliff!  He did not see this great pitfall and fell off the edge never to be heard of again.  Thus, two men entered the road at the crack of dawn wilst only one safely arrived at his destiny.  

TCK: Nay, make no mistake each movement of our heart is critical for the growth in Selfless Love.  We all have to make decisions every hour and every minute which ultimately determine our hearts final end.  The path to heaven is full of pain and uneasiness (at first for the Cross becomes sweet over time) .  It indeed is the path of “most resistance” therefore do not choose the easy road which leads off the cliff into the Abyss which the world provides.  At first, in the interior life, in the purification stage, it is very difficult and all seems dark.  A soul must bravely choose and walk this narrow path but over time as he reaches the illuminative stage all seemingly begins to make sense.  Our Lord did not take the “high road” but was willing to suffer every minute of the day all so that we could share in His Love.  Choose the path of most resistance today and do vast penances and mortify your senses and soul.  Fast more regularly and sacrifice without concern for the self.  Ultimately, we know choices have consequences therefore do not follow this world and all her vanity. It is a seemingly attractive road in which the majority travel with a smile but will eventually fall off the cliff by evenings end. But in the same sense choices likewise have rewards awaiting for those who remain faithful.  Thus, there is only one Catholic path which is pleasing to God; only one Faith which leads to His Sacred heart our Home.  And certainly we cannot follow the Modernists path which was created at the Second Vatican Council which is a departure from Catholic Tradition.

Scripture for meditation:
Psalms 118:35
Lead me into the path of thy commandments; for this same I have desired.

Proverbs 4:18
But the path of the just, as a shining light, goeth forwards and increaseth even to perfect day.

Proverbs 4:26
Make straight the path for thy feet, and all thy ways shall be established.

Proverbs 4:26
Make straight the path for thy feet, and all thy ways shall be established.

Proverbs 16:17
The path of the just departeth from evils: he that keepeth his soul keepeth his way.

Isaias (Isaiah) 26:7
The way of the just is right, the path of the just is right to walk in.
