Søren Says

When one has once fully entered the realm of love, the world — no matter how imperfect — becomes rich and beautiful, it consists solely of opportunities for love. ~ Works of Love

    This puts me in an even better mood. Thanks!

  2. Rufus McCain says

    Wonderful. Reminds me of that passage from Thomas Merton where he describes being on leave from the monastery and finding himself standing on a streetcorner in New York or some place. He’s overwhelmed with love for everyone he sees around him.

  3. The Ironic Catholic says

    Great quotation.

    Rufus, it’s Louisville, not NYC. One of my favorite stories. I told one of my gen ed theology classes that story, and ended with “you know, sometimes I think you are like that too–holy, and shining like the sun.” They all looked at me with “huh. She’s crazy, but in a NICE way….”

  4. Rufus McCain says

    Even better, given that Merton’s monastic name was Fr. Louis.

  5. Rodrigo Borges says

    hey, I have this great book. Please, help me. What page Kierkegaard said this?

    Thanks a lot.
