Quote of the Day

God isn’t a God who asks us to punish ourselves. He asks us to love other people which is punishment enough!

Quote of the Day

From a recent interview with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair:

"Now my father was a militant atheist," he said. "Before we prayed, I thought I should confess this. 'I'm afraid my father doesn't believe in God,' I said. 'That doesn't matter,' my teacher replied. 'God believes in him. He loves him without demanding or needing love in return.'"

"That is what inspires," Blair said, "the unconditional nature of God's love. A promise perpetually kept. A covenant never broken."

Thanks, Deacon Greg for this nugget from a man of faith recently received into the Full Communion of the Catholic Church.
