Note to My Readers: Due to the busyness of my summer schedule, in which I'm serving as a camp pastor on top of my normal duties, I'll be putting my ongoing Thursday and Friday series on hold until mid-August. All other days will continue to feature new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.

Quote of the Week

That infinite, ineffable true Good
     that dwells in Heaven speeds instantly to love,
     as light rays to a shining surface would;
Just as much ardor as it finds, it gives:
     the greater the proportion of our love,
     the more eternal goodness we receive;
The more souls there are above who are in love
     the more there are worth loving; 
          love grows more,
     each soul a mirror mutually mirroring.

- Dante, from his Purgatorio (Canto XV)
