Good afternoon, good evening, and goodnight

27 Jul

For many people, both believers and non-believers, take the film to be an atheistic tract, with Truman as a kind of Promethean Freethinker, shaking his fist at a Controller God and breaking away into Secular Maturity.

This is, however, to profoundly misread the film. For what is attacked is not theism, but happy-face secular utopianism. And the attack draws heavily on Catholic images to land its devastating blows.

Check out the rest in this post by Mark Shea on the Truman Show.

“Don’t you long…

25 Jul

“Don’t you long to shout to those youths who are bustling around you: Fools! Leave those worldly things that shackle the heart – and very often degrade it – leave all that and come with us in search of Love!”

-St. Josemaria Escriva

Purpose of Life

24 Jul

“An educated man will seek truth. The purpose of education is to acquaint us with truth. One basic truth that we have to learn is the truth of our own existence. We would not have a gadget in our house five minutes without knowing the meaning of that gadget and yet some people will live ten-twenty-fifty-sixty years without knowing why they are here or where they are going. What is the use of living unless we know the purpose of life?”

—Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Your soul speaking to Christ

22 Jul

From the moment I met you, all those years ago, not a day has gone by when I haven’t thought of you. And now that I’m with you again… I’m in agony. The closer I get to you, the worse it gets. The thought of not being with you- I can’t breath. I’m haunted by the kiss that you should never have given me. My heart is beating… hoping that kiss will not become a scar. You are in my very soul, tormenting me… what can I do?- I will do anything you ask.
