In Alice in Wonderland, all the characters of the fable remember Alice as a strong determined person. When she returns to revisit Wonderland the Mad Hatter senses something is amiss in Alice. He says to her, “Oh Alice, you’ve lost your ‘muchness,’ there is something missing inside you.”
Break, annul, relax, or set aside- when I teach people that they do not have to believe the Gospel, I lose my “muchness.”
According to St. Benedict, if I want to be a good Christian, I need to work on my holiness and not take it away from other people.
