Are we expecting utopia?

Are we expecting utopia here on this earth? God meant things to be much easier than we have made them. Eternal life begins now. "All the way to heaven is heaven, because He said 'I am the Way.' " The Cross is there, of course, but "in the Cross is joy of spirit." And love makes all things easy. If we are putting off the old man and putting on Christ, then we are walking in love, and love is all that we want. But it is hard to love, from the human standpoint and from the divine standpoint, when we are seemingly denied that which we long for the most. "All the way to heaven is heaven, because He said 'I am the Way.' " We remain eminently practical.
---Dorothy Day (paraphrase, mine).
