Really freakin' hard

A few weeks ago, I ordered Christopher West's Theology of the Body for Beginners. I haven't yet read it through. I'm afraid of what I'll read, afraid both that I'll believe it and that I won't. Both are scary propositions. It brings to mind this quote by Chesterton, highlighted by The Ironic Catholic this week:

"The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried."

Yup, that's me.

(Not that the Christian ideal is all about sexuality, of course. But it's illustrative.)
