    Here, then, immediately arose the idea of a non-reasoning creature capable of speech, and very naturally, a parrot, in the first instance, suggested itself, but was superseded forthwith by a Raven as equally capable of speech, and infinitely more in keeping with the intended tone.
    Note: Poe on his poem The Raven. Who would have thought we might have been reading The Parrot in high school English classes?

  • kwdayboise shared from Letters to Pope Francis by Matthew Fox
    Religion is irrelevant when it ignores science and when it does not stand up against powers of injustice, whether they are corporate powers pillaging nature and destroying our climate, media powers peddling entertainment addictions and distractions, or religious bigotry masquerading as “tradition” in opposition to homosexuals or women and their rights.
    Note: Fox's book is available on loan from Amazon for Prime members.
  • kwdayboise shared from The Mystical City of God: Complete Edition: The Divine History and Life of the Virgin Mother of God by Venerable Mary of Agreda
    As soon as Lucifer with his followers entered hell, they assembled in general council, which lasted to the morning of Thursday.
    Note: At last I understand why Hell is to be feared: Long meetings.
  • kwdayboise shared from On Heaven and Earth: Pope Francis on Faith, Family, and the Church in the Twenty-First Century by Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Abraham Skorka
    BERGOGLIO: Christianity condemns both Communism and wild capitalism with the same vigor. Private property is real, but carries with it the obligation to put it at the service of others within just parameters. A clear example of what happens is the flight of money to foreign countries. Money also has a Homeland. Someone who operates a business in a country and then takes that money to keep it outside of the country is sinning because he is not honoring with that money the country to which he owes his wealth, or the people that worked to generate it.
    Note: The future pope on Christianity and economics.
