Fear is a dreadful drawback because it stops us living in the moment.
Irish Catholicism is very much founded on the stone of fear and of punishment.
What makes us so afraid is the thing we half see, or half hear, as in a wood at dusk, when a tree stump becomes an animal and a sound becomes a siren. And most of that fear is the fear of not knowing, of not actually seeing correctly.
