"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

"St. Kevin"

Kept meaning to mention that Thersites has Seamus Heaney's "St. Kevin" up on his blog, which is as good a place as any to find it.

Reading it always reminds me of one more life task I have, which is to read the poetry of Seamus Heaney.

The poem itself could inspire an entire course on Celtic prayer and Celtic spirituality.
