I am so busy today with no extra energy on account of the fact that I am not feeling well, so I cannot even believe I am blogging. But inspiration is inspiration.
I told my Thomistic Thought class yesterday, on the subject of our 'imaging' of God, that every mental act terminates in love. Now that is too much to explain right now, but the point is when we truly know something we know it as God knows it, and we know it in light of the great delight God took in making that truth. Every human being is a part of the high truth of God. He planned every single one. Why, because He loves them thoroughly. Thus, when we come to know people truly as God does, we come to love them as God does.
Thus the barbarity of abortion, of poverty, any kind of exploitation, pornography, slander...
If we don't feel the barbarity of it it is because we do not know like God knows and we do not love as God loves.
I'll explain that one some other time, when I'm not ill and not under the gun to deliver a spectacular lecture on the Cappadocians, Sts. Basil, Gregory of Nyssa and Gregory Nazianzus, to just the most wonderful class of young people you could ever ask for!
Until next time, enjoy my daughter. I know I do. Thanks, God!
