Patheos lands a Gyrene!

From the halls of Montezuma and so forth, Patheos has happily taken aboard a Mary-lovin’ Marine. Welcome Frank Weathers and Why I am Catholic to Patheos’ growing gang of Catholic bloggers!

He’s rambunctious. He’s energetic. We just brought him over and he’s already written his second post!

A few years ago, the Dalai Lama (seen above visiting Thomas Merton’s grave) was asked the question “what do you find most surprising about humanity?” His reply,

Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he doesn’t enjoy the present; the result being he doesn’t live in the present or the future; he lives as if he’s never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.

All truth is from God, see, no matter from whence we hear it. Remember what Our Lord said at the Sermon on the Mount?

Read it all; you’ll want to subscribe!
