The Advent of Advent

Wilt thou be angry with us forever?
Wilt thou not revive us again, that thy people may rejoice in thee...
that glory may dwell in our land?

Bible Study: Conquest and Judges

"...the weapons of our warfare are not worldly but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy...every proud obstacle to the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ." (2 Corinthians 10:4-5)

Beautiful Light

Morning Light
"St. Albert defines beauty in terms of light, which is present in every being as a reflection of the divine light. All created perfections stem from God, who is their model and exemplar. They all exist most perfectly in him. Every creature is composite...but God's being alone is simple (simplex essentia). That is why his proper name, revealed in Scripture, is 'He Who Is' (Exod. 3:14)"--Armand A. Maurer, C.S.B., on Saint Albert the Great in Medieval Philosophy, 1962. Saint Albert's feast day is tomorrow, November 15.
