The Only Choice

cs-lewis“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.

——-C. S. Lewis

This is always been a favorite of mind.

Consciously or Not, Christ Can Transform You

Great quote.

Contemplative in the Mud

Cardinal LustigerIn the depths of your consciousness, this presence of the Word of God will seek and gather up all that perhaps you have not succeeded in mastering and putting in order, in the light of God the Saviour. And while you are sleeping, it will bear fruit, more than you can imagine.
Jean-Marie Cardinal Lustiger (1926–2007)
