Mary vs Eve

As I lay in the arms of my wife this morning I thought how filled with joy and love I am. I wondered what Adam and Eve would have been thinking after they made love. They are in Paradise. God is fully present with them. They would be happy, fulfilled. How is it possible Eve

Morning insights

The other day i suggested if you have real faith in just about anything it would have a tendency to become real, for values of real; and then asked why have faith in God? The answer comes from another question I have been asking myself, “who am I?”. Somewhere in the quiet moments of meditation

Morning musings

Does it matter what you have faith in? Will anything you believe in firmly enough tend to become real? For example “not all boys have penises”. I guess it depends on what you mean by real. I would say obviously in some meanings of the word real this is never becomes real. But also obviously

Saturday night I had a dream or vision there would be an apocalypse. Not sure if it is just personal for me or nationwide or worldwide. Not really hard to predict at this point though. The interesting part is the cure. I have been reading St. Gregory of Nyssa. A section about the beatitudes. “The

Morning insight 01/05/2021

It’s 5am and I am praying for America. I am praying for the world. Lord I ask you to save our country, save the world. “Does that mean I should save you?” Uh, I really didn’t want to focus on me. But my neighbor needs to be changed. I want others to stand up for
