As we prepare to go on holiday, as the Brits say, I will take a hiatus from blogging for a fortnight, resuming after June 1.
In the meantime, a good quote from Thomas Merton that is worth pondering:
'We make ourselves real by telling the truth. Man can hardly foreget that he needs to know the truth, for the instinct to know is too strong in us to be destroyed. But he can forget how badly he also needs to tell the truth. We cannot know truth unless we ourselves are conformed to it.'
--from A Merton Reader, ed. McDonnell, p. 120.
