the digressional record

i work in tech, but i try not to nerd out. i like to talk about guam, theology, science, stupid ideas, useless info,
sports during the playoffs, food, beer, and cats. and i will digress.

One thing have I asked of the Lord,
that will I seek after;
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to behold the beauty of the Lord,
and to inquire in his temple.  --ps. 27:4

"What a great work of charity! Death itself died when life was slain on the tree."


“Marriage … is about “man and woman walking together, wherein the husband helps his wife to become ever more a woman, and wherein the woman has the task of helping her husband to become ever more a man.”” http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/pope-to-couples-cross-illuminates-purpose-of-marriage-91485/

today this began to apply to me, with special focus on matthew asking, “me?”
except for Jesus himself, i have been every one of the people in this painting by caravaggio.
… but no, i’m not discerning the priesthood!  this is about something else.

invited to converse

image

"The root reason for human dignity lies in man’s call to communion with God. From the very circumstance of his origin man is already invited to converse with God. For man would not exist were he not created by God’s love and constantly preserved by it; and he cannot live fully according to truth unless he freely acknowledges that love and devotes himself to His Creator."
