Choosing words

We are very good at choosing and using words that divide.

Maybe we use them because we don’t really choose them – they are near at hand, floating in the air around us.

Like COVID.

A plan of sheer goodness

I am not a Roman Catholic; reading the Catechism of the Catholic Church is not something that would have ever occurred to me to do. But I kept running into Catholic writers, one after another, who wrote about faith and life with a richness I hadn’t seen before: Walker Percy, Flannery O’Connor, Thomas Merton, James Martin, and Jean Vanier to name a few.  So I spent several years looking into Roman Catholicism in depth, which included reading through the Catechism…twice.
