Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Worth your time

On the Touchstone (a Christian magazine) blog "Mere Comments" is this poignant post on the spiritual life of Mother Teresa (and, obliquely, a jab at the media "frenzy" that has erupted over it) and what she says by it to us as Christian believers. This is a must read for all, and worth passing around your e-mail list, especially if you have people on there who might be caught in the net of the media's misinterpretations about Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

On the other hand, all this media attention will certainly have one good result - many more people will be heading to the bookstore to get Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light when it is released on September 4th. Some Catholics may be nervous about the book, if they let the media's perception guide them, but I want to assure you all NOT to. The compiler of these letters, of this book, is none other than Fr. Brian Kolodiejchuk, who was one of Mother's closest companions and is now in charge of presenting her cause for canonization to sainthood to the Holy See. He, and this book, are indeed trustworthy.

I predict that this book will be a wonderful way for Mother to evangelize beyond the grave, and in particular perhaps for the many people in our culture who are suffering from their own "dark night" of doubts, depression, anxiety and fear.

Buy a copy today, and move it up to #1 on the Amazon top-sellers list!
