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

"True humility consists in a deep view of our utter unworthiness and an absolute abandonment to God, without the slightest doubt that He will do the greatest things in us."

- François de Salignac de la Mothe-Fénelon (popularly known as Fénelon), Roman Catholic archbishop of Cambrai, France, in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, from his Christian Counsel (ch. 6).
