Seeing the hysteria reminds me of St. Alphonsus:
The children of this world are wiser in their generation than the children of light.
265 How prudent are worldings in earthly affairs! What toil do they endure in order to obtain a situation, or to acquire an estate? With what care do they attend to the preservation of bodily health! They adopt the safest means; they select the best physicians, the best remedies, and the purest air. But how careless are they about the concerns of the soul! And it is certain that health, situations and possessions will one day end; but the soul and eternity are everlasting. What do not the unjust, the vindictive, and voluptuous endure in order to attain their wicked objects? And will they refuse to suffer anything for the soul? O God! By the light of the death-candle, at that time of truth, worldlings know and confess their folly.
