"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

Season's Gleamings

Something to lighten the burden of the liturgical calendar before I leave for the day (or most of it). And it's more appropriate to the time of year. Probably drive my traffic up a bit, too, as this is certainly more "user-friendly" than the kind of stuff I usually post.

We had one of these when I was a child (the tree, not the book). Complete with color wheel. It's gone now, just when I could appreciate it.

It really brings Christmas close to a person. Especially during Advent.
