"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

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

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

Well, is it?

I hate taking things out of context.  Then again, I like the practice of lectio divina.

Go figure.

So the daily news holds no interest for me at the moment.  Maybe I'm subconsciously preparing for Lent.  Less grandly, maybe I'm just at the end of my interest for the moment.  Either way, I'm pondering this sentence by Levinas:

"Is time the very limitation of finite being or is it the relationship of infinite being to God?"

Talk among yourselves.  I'm gonna be busy for awhile.
