“Guard against anger.
But if it cannot be averted, let it be kept within bounds.
For indignation is a terrible incentive to sin.
It disorders the mind to such an extent as to leave no room for reason.”
(detail of the Sacred Heart of Jesus / Santa Maria sopra Minerva / Rome, Italy / Julie Cook / 2018)
“That raises a terrible question.
How is it that people who are quite obviously eaten up with Pride can say they
believe in God and appear to themselves very religious?
I am afraid it means they are worshiping an imaginary God.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
Julie, I’ve wondered about that second quote more than once. The answer to the quote, not the qjote itself. So glad I happened to be online today and able to see your wise post.
Have a blessed day, Julie.
Hi Angie!!!! So good to hear from you!!! How’s life up there in Kentucky?
Mostly cold and wet up here, Julie. The leaves are still turning so the view from my window is beautiful from this high up. God has dipped His finger in the prettiest pots of paint He invented.
So glad to hear that—our leaves are slow in turning and in turn are falling off before really striking those stellar hues!
Reblogged this on Talmidimblogging.
As usual, CS Lewis offers excellent insight. That’s a cool painting too of the sacred heart.
indeed Mr Lewis nails it—and yes, a really ethereal sort of image….
