Learning to Breathe

John, 21. Paradox-in-Being.

Thy Nature and Thy Name is Love

getmetoanunnery:

In almost every homily for every wedding I ever worked as a pastoral assistant (which was a lot), the priest usually talked about that passage from Genesis, how “It is not good for man to be alone.” And then he would talk about how partners are supposed to help one another, and how this is for the…

gospelofthekingdom:

"Salvation is not forced upon us. God does not coerce His creation into a saving intimacy with Himself. Love never imposes itself on anyone. If it does, it ceases to be love, for love reveres the freedom of each individual. For this reason, God will always yield to man’s will.

That moment

nunccognosco:

when you realise the next forty days are going to be quite long. 

Teach us to care and not to care

Teach us to sit still

Even among these rocks,

Our peace in His will

And even among these rocks

Sister, mother

And spirit of the river, spirit of the sea,

Suffer me not to be separated

And let my cry come unto Thee.

“I think the reason why twentysomethings are so fixated on age is because we feel a pressure to be a certain way at 23, at 25, at 29. There are all of these invisible deadlines with our careers and with love and drinking and drugs. I can’t do coke at 25. I need to be in a LTR at 27. I can’t vomit from drinking at 26. I just can’t! We feel so much guilt for essentially acting our age and making mistakes. We’re obsessed with this idea of being domesticated and having our shit together. It’s kind of sad actually because I don’t think we ever fully get a chance to enjoy our youth. We’re so concerned about doing things “the right way” that we lose any sense of pleasure in doing things the wrong way. Youth may be truly wasted on the young.”

"How can I stop acting like a dork-waffle and a half in front of people I find attractive?"

“Lutherans had been fighting about the issue of human sexuality for years at this point. This whole argument my denomination was having around including “the gays” mirrored the argument forty years earlier around the ordination of women, which mirrored the argument in the early church around inclusion of gentiles. Which means that disagreements over “inclusion” happened approximately twenty minutes after Christianity started.”

Lent

For those of you who read these things: I’ll be taking a break from Tumblr starting Ash Wednesday until (at least) Easter. 

A blessed Lent to all!

“‘Capitalism seizes, confiscates, and dries up wealth, i.e. reduces the numbers of those who may enjoy riches, holds up distribution and defies Divine Providence who has given good things for the use of all men. St. Thomas Aquinas says that man must not consider riches as his own property but as common good.”
