"this life is so beautiful, that sometimes I am afraid of it."

Joey,

Feeling better. Do you like music? I was thinking of Mozart. They say whole symphonies and operas were completed in his mind, even before he began to write them. So take that and multiply it by an Infinith degree and then maybe there we have a glimpse of God. The Universe, cosmos, Earth, history, mankind, all the living things, the beginning and the end it is all one symphony, and a single thought of God. Trillions of counterpoints, trillions of themes. And it all starts and ends in the same key: Christ, the Alpha and the Omega. And I think it is a major key, though there might be sad themes in the slow movement and frantic themes in the scherzo. It all comes together in the end.

I am not raving, lol, I thought of that in bed this morning thats when all my good thoughts come to me.

Nicholas

Funny, I also get my good thoughts first thing in the morning, often before getting out of bed or in the shower. I think that's because our mind is clear and focused on God. As the day goes on, we get busy with the business of the world and that is what takes over a lot of the space oin our thoughts. That's why it's good to take time throughoutr the day to pray and reflect, if possible. Just my opinion.

Darrell,

I agree. I have my one moment of glory in the morning and then God help me who knows what could happen.

I like Arinze's attitude.

He brooks no dissent.
He prefers the Latin Mass.
He speaks out against liberal heresies and the undermining and contradiction of Church teaching.

He will be a good Pope.

I agree with you, though I admit the first time you mentioned Arinze would be Peter the Roman I was skeptical. I had a preconcieved notion on what Peter the Roman might be.

After having learned more about Arinze I am convinced now that he is the one. One thing I like about him is that (pardon the street language) he isnt afraid to piss people off when it comes to the Faith.

So take everything he is now, and add the graces of the Illumination, and all the special graces God has destined for him as Peter the Roman and I think we have a glorious saint in the making.

And perhaps a few spare prayers can be directed toward this would-be saint, as he has quite a few trials ahead of him.I find myself praying for Benedict and Cardinal Arinze these days.


One of my favorite quotes is actually a song by Dan Shutte, in which the text is inspired by St. John of the Cross. And now, everytime I sing it, it reminds me of Padraig and his thread .

"Holy darkness, blessed night
Heaven's answer, hidden from our sight
As we await You, Oh God of silence
We embrace Your holy night."
