The Scandal of Suffering


The problem with most Christians today is we are like the Pharisees who said, "Come down from the Cross and we will believe you are the Christ". Mother Angelica

I still don't understand the peace that passes understanding.

Indeed, if Jesus would do just one more thing at my behest, it would totally restore my faith (in myself and in my system of beliefs about him). But, no, he suffers instead, insisting on the wisdom of grace.

a wonderful Mother Angelica quote. My mother would tune in to EWTN when I was a small child. I always wanted to meet her. And the little church that EWTN shows is a nice place for a Roman Catholic Mass.

Hey, first time I saw Mother Angelica I said, "Nana!" Spitting image, sound, etc.

Remember she had an Orthodox monk on waaaay back when before... I'd ever even imagined one day I'd be Orthodox. Prophetic, huh?
