timely considerations

“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.”

St. Ambrose


(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

  1. 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.

    As usual, CS Lewis offers excellent insight. That’s a cool painting too of the sacred heart.
