Religion & law

Reflecting upon my recent careers in law & ministry, I'm posting this quote from attorney Tom Gallagher.
When police want to question you, ask "WWJD?" (Hint: refuse to answer, remain silent.)

South Dakota winter - III

Blue Cloud Abbey is about a mile from Marvin, South Dakota. Spring has arrived, yet I wanted to share these photos from Marvin lest we forget that last winter was brutal in the Dakotas.

St. Patrick's prayer

Christ beside me, 
Christ before me, 
Christ behind me, 
Christ within me, 
Christ beneath me, 
Christ above me.

It ain't the parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand.

how to pray

Let the person who prays not ignore this: how the publican prayed with the Pharisee in the Temple. Not by impudently lifting his eyes to heaven nor by insolently raising his hands, but striking his breast and testifying to the sins hidden within him, he implored the help of divine mercy. And although the Pharisee was pleased with himself, it was this man, rather, who deserved to be accounted upright. For he placed the hope of salvation not in confidence in his own innocence, for no one is innocent, but he confessed his sins and prayed humbly. And he who forgives the humble, heard him as he prayed.
-- Saint Cyprian (c.200-258)

Orthodox prayer

The Father is my hope --
The Son is my refuge --

O Holy Trinity, glory to Thee.

The gospel is only good news if it gets there in time.
