Side note: Notice how Religion and Spirituality interact with each other to clarify their direction towards God. Ideally, we do not “prefer” one over the other but instead we live in the TENSION of both. To find peace within the tension (and abandoning the desire to eliminate that tension) is one of our goals in life. After all, the tension is where the Paschal Mystery is. Or, let’s put it this way: life is always changing. Therefore, we need to embrace the constant change (the tension caused by the movement that is change).
