Visitors - Come on in and say hello!

Monday, June 07, 2010


I know I haven't posted much lately, and most of what I have of late has consisted of re-posts.

At this time of transition, my energy is going into prayer and pondering and I haven't felt like writing.

I have already begun working on a serious study of scripture, finally acting on a deep question I have carried with me for three years. I have the skills, I have the resources...all but one:  I still need a 1966 New Jerusalem Bible, the one with the Patristic footnotes. I couldn't even FIND one of these when I first took Old Testament, and of those that have come available, well...I couldn't afford it then and can't afford it now.

If it is meant to fall into my hands, it will. In the meantime, I'll use the tools I have and delve into the Church Fathers and their commentaries that relate to my topic as the time comes.

For now, it is sufficient to read Sacred Scripture with an eye to my topic, mark the relevant passages as I go, and complete the synthesis/analysis/exegesis as time goes on.

Please forgive me if I continue to re-post old things. For now I don't feel like blogging and don't have any idea when I will. It simply isn't that important.
