Apparently my niece goes absolutely bonkers when she’s put inside a grocery cart while shopping. No wonder God loves little children very much- they live in the moment, & that is why they find magic in the little things such as grocery carts. While most of us would rather want a million dollars to be happy. So, maybe tis the time we should all get in to grocery carts? Jk. But you get the idea.
"The Catholic Church did not divorce Truth from Beauty, that is one of the marks of the Catholic imagination; we did not drive a wedge. We saw the two as mutually ‘implicative’: the ‘truer’ you are the more beautiful, the more beautiful the truer you are, because they’re always together. And that served us very well."
"The Church is counter-cultural like Jesus; often at odds with what passes as chic, enlightened, and progressive."
"Without truth, charity (love) slides into sentimentalism. Love becomes an empty shell to be filled arbitrarily. This is the fatal risk of love in a culture without truth."
"Corpus Christi Sunday is one of my fave solemnities as it’s one of the rare occasions that people would likely hear they’re actually receiving the Body, blood, Soul & Divinity of Jesus in the appearance of bread -not merely a “symbol."
Today at Mass: There are 3 kinds of people in the world:
1) The Stoics who believe everything in the world should be shunned, for they are evil.
2) Addicts who believe that earthly pleasure is paramount but are never satisfied anyway.
3) And the Mystics who believe the things of this world are good but the human heart is made for Eternity, for a world beyond this one.. For God."
