Holiness is in right action
Quote by William Monahan: “I put no stock in religion. By the word religio...”
God Wills It!
A real shame that they lost so much of the story in abridged version. Eva Green was stunning in this, but I think the real dark horse that stole the show was the King of Jerusalem Edward Norton impressive feat considering we never see his face; but that voice, gosh, so much love. I particularly loved his exchanges with Balian and Saladin.
“Holiness is in right action and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves.”
Self-hatred is also the hatred of God, because God and ourselves are united. Allow yourself to be shocked by the universality of Scriptures like 1 Corinthians , or Colossians God looks at us and always sees Christ, and God thus finds us always and entirely lovable. We will find God entirely lovable and ourselves fully lovable in the same moment. Because it is the same set of eyes that is doing the looking. Francis put it. This is our spiritual agenda for our whole life.
There's a significant difference between my two-year-old granddaughter and me. Yes, I'm taller and older and able to support myself, but it's something more profound. She demonstrates this difference every time we're together. My granddaughter will make me sit down in a chair so she can serve me tea and a sandwich. When she delivers my order, the cup is empty and the plate has no food on it.
