Two False Maxims

One of the parts of my Catholic education I’ve worked hardest to unlearn is the maxim that if you’re unhappy, you’re doing it right.

This is quite false. Unfortunately, the opposite is also false.

When the world shook and the sun was wiped out of heaven, it was not at the crucifixion, but at the cry from the cross: the cry which confessed that God was forsaken of God.

And now let the revolutionists choose a creed from all the creeds and a god from all the gods of the world, carefully weighing all the gods of inevitable recurrence and of unalterable power. They will not find another god who has himself been in revolt.

Nay (the matter grows too difficult for human speech), but let the atheists themselves choose a god. They will find only one divinity who ever uttered their isolation; only one religion in which God seemed for an instant to be an atheist.

I am adding these pictures of this beautiful girl huting with her huge huge majestic terrifying eagle to the list of photos that I want to be reminded of all the time.

PTA talks about Magnolia. Gosh I love this movie and this man. I am trying to write about his stuff right now, so that is a good excuse to bathe myself in PTA video clips.
