Note to My Readers: from mid-June to mid-August (6/18 - 8/20), I will be taking a summer break from posting new articles for my Thursday and Friday slots. This will only affect my Thursday series on the global growth of Christianity, and my Friday series, the "Theological Bestiary" of birds, both of which will resume in late August. During the summer, I'll be dusting off some of my best essays from the first few years of this blog (a decade ago), as well as my verse play "Thus Ends the World," and re-posting them in the Thursday and Friday slots. All other weekdays will continue to feature new material throughout the summer.

Quote of the Week - Jean-Pierre de Caussade

"The terrifying objects put in our way are nothing. They are only summoned to embellish our lives with glorious adventures."

- Jean-Pierre de Caussade, 18th-century French Catholic theologian and mystical writer, author of Abandonment to Divine Providence (also translated as The Sacrament of the Present Moment)
