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: Eve Tushnet

I just read this excellent piece by Eve Tushnet, one of my favorite queer Catholics. (After years of trying, I still haven't been able to come up with a satisfying portmanteau of gay/queer/etc. with Christian/Catholic/etc., it's very frustrating.) Here on her Patheos blog, she states quite neatly and succinctly certain of the problems that plague Catholic-queer dialogue, and have done for decades. The whole (short) piece is good, but I think the gem of it is the sentence, "Surrender and penitence are realistic whereas success is not."
