A quote from one of the essays we will be discussing at our next meeting:

"We believe that His intention is to create a certain personal relation between Himself and us, a relation really sui generis but analogically describable in terms of filial or of erotic love."

"On Obstinacy in Belief"

We will be meeting on Monday, April 27th at 6:15pm in the Conference Room at the Library.

And another Kevin O'Brien video, posted because C.S. Lewis is mentioned, early, 2 minutes or so.

Another Kevin O'Brien video, this is not a video of his acting skills, just a book discussion, but a Lewis book!

The previous post featured a clip I quickly found on You Tube when searching for C.S. Lewis related material.  Kevin O'Brien is the actor in the video portraying Tolkien.  I do not know much about O'Brien, over the years I have seen him portraying Chesterton on Dale Ahlquist's show The Apostle of Common Sense on EWTN.  I still do not know much about O'Brien, but I spent some time watching his other videos HERE.  You will find some of the videos educational and informative, most of the videos I watched I found hilarious.  Kevin O'Brien's characters and his acting will have you in stitches.  You can find more information about Kevin O'Brien's work HERE.

An image of "Heaven"? - the better something is the harder it is to find an adequate representation of.

Your soul has a curious shape because it is a hollow made to fit a particular swelling in the infinite contours of the divine substance, or a key to unlock one of the doors in the house with many mansions.  For it is not humanity in the abstract that is to be saved, but you – you, the individual reader . . . Blessed and fortunate creature, your eyes shall behold Him and not another's.  All that you are, sins apart, is destined, if you will let God have His good way, to utter satisfaction . . . Your place in heaven will seem to be made for you and you alone, because you were made for it.
