People need time to mature

One expression of . . . techno-pathology is the high rate of depression and, I suspect, divorce. Life doesn’t change by the click of a mouse. People, like plants, need time to mature. Many of life’s situations which we find disagreeable can change if only we put into them some time and effort. Too many people today run for the fire escape at just the smell of smoke. Emergency doors should rarely be used, yet many people, especially the young, use them because they don’t care to wait.
— Fr. Glenn Sudano, CFR, Most Blessed Sacrament Friary, Newark, NJ, From the Friars, April 26, 2007
