Quote of the Day

You don’t see me quote the pope often, but this quote from his encyclical Spe Salvi (Saved by Hope) I came across in a recent Time article speaks a lot of truth.

It is when we attempt to avoid suffering by withdrawing from anything that might involve hurt, when we try to spare ourselves the effort and pain of pursuing truth, love, and goodness, that we drift into a life of emptiness, in which there may be almost no pain, but the dark sensation of meaninglessness and abandonment is all the greater.

    Good stuff…hey, if Paul can quote that dude in Acts 17, who was talking about Zeus…surely, surely you can quote the Pope…especially if it’s true!

    Truth is truth, no matter the source…I think Ghandi said that! ha
