Collect

Summary of the Law (said at every Sunday Mass)

Hear what our Lord Jesus Christ saith: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, with all thy mind, and with all thy strength. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like unto it: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Reblog: Andrew Marin

I've been kind of out of commission this week. A friend of our family unexpectedly passed away on Sunday night, and I've needed time to grieve and detox from the busy-ness. I am working on a new post, but it'll be a bit longer.

Meanwhile, this essay on the difficulty of trusting someone who likes someone you hate (or who hates you) from the Marin Foundation's blog is worth a read. I like the work they do a lot, and I feel that this post sets exactly the right tone for all bridge-building projects -- as well as showing why they're so hard. Reconciliation is never, ever easy, and sometimes, because of one or both parties' stubbornness, it doesn't succeed; but it is nonetheless work worth doing.

  1. I just recently found out about your blog and I've enjoyed your posts. My condolences on the passing of your friend. May her/his soul rest in peace and may Our Lady comfort you in this time of grief.
