A Higher Love

From a student at the Dominican House of Studies today:

man is made for something beyond himself, for something beyond this world. In his book, The Sources of Christian Ethics, Fr. Servais Pinckaers, O.P., emphasizes something that we tend to forget, namely, that the aim of Christian ethics is beatitude, which is nothing less than the vision of God. Pinckaers calls this realization of man’s final end a “wisdom received from without.” Clearly, a Christian’s life, thought, and deeds are not focused on himself or even solely on his neighbor, but are founded upon a love so radical that it enters into him and directs him toward God.
