I shall never forget that remarkable comment made by a simple Himalayan highlander, a Sherpa tribesman by the name of Tenzing, who climbed Mt. Everest with Sir Edmund Hillary. He said that one must approach mountains with reverence. So too with God.
Indeed, the greatness and beauty of mountains are understood only with a special attitude of the soul. Truth is hidden from those who seek it irreverently and who are unprepared to proceed regardless of the dangers, precipices and clefts. (Fr.A.Men, Christianity)
