And Now My Meae Culpae


And Now My Meae Culpae
OR, why I don't often comment on events and people

Every time, every single time, I'm given some reminder. Here's today's--from St. John of the Cross, Sayings of Light and Love

62. Because the virtues you have in mind do not shine in your neighbor, do not think that your neighbor will not be precious in God's sight for reasons that you have not in mind.

69. You will without labor subject the nations and bring things to serve you if you forget them and yourself as well.

109. Wisdom enters through love, silence, and mortification. It is great wisdom to know how to be silent and to look at neither the remarks, nor the deeds, nor the lives of others.

116. The entire world is not worthy of a human being's thought, for this belongs to God alone; any thought, therefore, not centered on God is stolen from him.

118. Ignoring the imperfections of others, preserving silence and a continual communion with God will eradicate great imperfections from the soul and make it the possessor of great virtues.

Oh well, caught and convicted again! It's a good thing I have a great attorney and advocate in Jesus Christ!
