Living with contradictions/walking in the dark

The day cold despite the sun.

Reading Don Colacho’s aphorisms and going slowly.

God is that inscrutable feeling of protection at our back.

 

Trying to find a way through the labyrinth that might hold something of sureness, the hidden ascetic practices, the  yearning, the submission to love as agape. Winding a red thread between my finding and  stepping forward in  obscurity.


“The Church is intolerant in principle because she believes; she is tolerant in practice because she loves. The enemies of the Church are tolerant in principle because they do not believe; they are intolerant in practice because they do not love.”
-Rev. Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange O.P

Disenchantment and  the question of how metaphysics  and a new Thomism might re-enchant reality, as we see differently. To retrieve an awareness of continuity amidst rupture and  digression, to  believe  that like others I am led back to the turning point and see my beginning  with a fresh vision.

 

Don Colacho

What is difficult is not to believe in God, but to believe that we matter to Him.

Faith is not a conviction we possess, but a conviction that possesses us.
