Se você fica lendo jornal para acompanhar o que está acontecendo no Congresso, então lamento informar-lhe, meu filho, mas não é de política que você gosta, é de literatura barata.

Vocação

Finally, we are taught that to discover God’s will for us we must be faithful to Him where we are, faithful to and in the conditions in which He has placed us. One of the greatest obstacles to the discovery of one’s vocation in life, which is a clear expression of our disobedience and self-will, is the desire to be someone else, someplace else, sometime else. We have all heard people say that if only they lived in another place, or in another time, or with other people…then they could be holy. Or, if only they were married. Or, if only they were not married. If only this, and if only that! We must come to see how sinful such an attitude is, how crazy and deluded. It is simply blasphemy. And it may well be the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit which Christ says cannot be forgiven, for it dares to tell God that our failures in life are His fault for making us the way we are (Mt. 12:31; Lk. 12:10).

Praticando-se a verdade que já se sabe, passa-se a merecer aquela que se ignora. Passa-se a merecê-la na visão de Deus e também por meio de um mérito que já é um autocoroamento; uma vez que todas as verdades estão interligadas, e a homenagem prestada ao fato sendo a mais decisiva de todas, quando nós a prestamos à verdade da vida, nós nos aproximamos das luzes soberanas e do que delas depende. Basta eu embarcar no afluente e chegarei ao rio, e daí ao mar.

Dá o que pensar, não dá?

“The intellect does many good and bad things without the body, whereas the body can do neither good nor evil without the intellect. This is because the law of freedom applies to what happens before we act.”

Saint Kosmas Aitolos

Religious Experience

If indeed the yearnings associated with religious experience are constant, then to repress them, or to deny them, or even to ignore them in a fit of cultural control could block their genuine expression and deflect them into divertissements, as classically identified by Pascal and Kierkegaard, or, worse yet, facilitate their migration into diabolic political activities.
