The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

Another Quick Reminder


I have been making the bad joke lately that the only reason that Martin Luther said that you can't buy off God with works is because he wasn't trying hard enough. We in the Catholic Church are not quitters, and we will continue to make pilgrimages, pray rosaries, and buy the thumbs of saints until God begins to bargain down....

Seriously though, God is not bought off. It is either all or nothing with God (or maybe rather all and nothing).

Everyone knows you can't buy off God - to attempt to do so is a mortal sin. But that's why we have Mary and all the saints. Those saints are always looking for a good bribe.

(Now I'll duck out to say 15 decades of the Rosary.)
