What Fresh Hell is This


Hurricane Harvey's Stinging Nightmare: Floating Fire Ant Colonies

"What fresh hell is this?"

  Still I came upon another more benign quote worthy of thought: 


"Life is not just a succession of events or experiences, helpful though many of them are. It is a search for the TRUE, the GOOD and the BEAUTIFUL. It is to this end that we make our choices; it is for this that we exercise our freedom; it is in this – in truth, in goodness, and in beauty – that we find happiness and joy. Do not be fooled by those who see you as just another consumer in a market of undifferentiated possibilities, where choice itself becomes the good, novelty usurps beauty, and subjective experience displaces truth.” PBXVI July 2008
… do not be fooled

The “big lie,” Father Benedict said, (and I’m paraphrasing him at this point), is to think that if we say all the right prayers and live correctly, then nothing bad will ever happen to us." - Michael Dubruiel
