Quote of the Day (Andrew Perriman)

“This is the problem—one of the problems—that the modern church has with reading the Bible. Very often what we mean when we affirm the clarity or perspicuity of scripture is that we can see the immediate details, we can understand the isolated verse or paragraph. The human mind is extremely adept at making apparent sense of what is put in front of it. We are skilled at assimilating texts into our worldview or theological system, and texts taken in isolation are usually powerless to stop us. They seem clear enough, but we have only a very poor, disoriented sense of how they relate to the whole—and more seriously, we have no idea in which direction to go.”

    For Catholics, this is why Christ gave His Church a Magisterium, to determine the canon of Scripture and therefore, correctly interpret it.

    Don’t neglect the factors you as quickly when you owned. Treasure the factors you cannot get. Don’t quit the factors that belong for you and retain people lost factors in memory. gss3w43s%6
