"A [preacher] who does not love art, poetry, music and nature can be dangerous. Blindness and deafness toward the beautiful are not incidental; they are necessarily reflected in his theology." — BXVI
I've been enjoying your blog (especially your homilies) for some time, but I was genuinely puzzled today when my screen said, "Calvin got it right". You have to understand that I have an extremely old-fahioned, very slow internet connection, and only the words came up, and I thought you meant Calvin, of John Calvin-Calvinism fame! It was only when the picture came up that Irealised which Calvin you meant.m. Evfrosinia, an Orthodox nunfrom France
Great. I'm spending extra time in purgatory for pranking a nun.Sorry, sister! Me culpa.
We Orthodox have a slightly different understanding of purgatory. And anyway, I think that putting a smile on the face of a very overworked nun puts you in the clear/ Thanks! :)
