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

SSA & the Seminary

Homosexuality and the Catholic seminary is a hot-button topic, but one that needs to be discussed in today's society (and, I would venture to say, in all societies, in all ages, as Ecclesiastes gets it right - "there is nothing new under the sun", particularly when it comes to sin and disordered tendencies, we've all got concupiscence thanks to our first parents, after all.

I bring this up because today I spotted a spot-on post on Jimmy Akin's blog, with a testimony and plea for help in discerning a vocation from a person who does have experience with SSA - and he really, truly, wants to discern WITH God and the Church, not FOR God and the Church. It is heartwarming and inspiring, and we really must pray for this young man. But first, before you can love someone, you must come to knowledge of them (as Aquinas so soundly observed!), and so I ask that you now click over and read his story and the worthy commentary that follows it.
