Geteilte Freude ist doppelte Freude

June 21st, 2014 by Vader

Geteilter Schmerz halber Schmerz.

Which is why we are under solemn covenant to mourn with those that mourn. Reading Dan’s blog this week has been awfully hard on the photoreceptors, which don’t respond well to saltwater immersion.

And please consider making a modest donation to nowilaymedowntosleep.org, which Dan has indicated provided its free services to his family. I visited the web site and it seems like a very worthy charity.

Woman is the Glory of Man

February 11th, 2014 by G.

The man is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

Thus St. Paul.

He says it in the middle of some deeply reactionary stuff about women keeping their head covered in church and such so this particular teaching gets lost. But as with an illusionist’s trick, the part that draws the eye isn’t the important part.

So what does Paul mean? I don’t know. But sometimes my life as a husband and a father feels like I could say ‘she is my glory.’ I feel like I do a lot of scutwork out in the world and a lot of discipline and order and stabilizing at home to make possible the little circle of domestic intimacy that she creates. Because of what I have to do to make it possible, or because I am the sort of person who does what is necessary to make it possible, I can’t fully be a part of it. But all the same that circle validates all my efforts, it seems to me.

Subversion of reverence for the family is among the greatest evils of modernity -

January 19th, 2014 by Bookslinger

- because family is the primary metaphor for divine love.

To misunderstand the family leads modern Man to misunderstand God – to find Him incomprehensible.

Thus, Bruce Charlton.

This dovetails with his previous post about how without God you cannot love your neighbour.

No success in the world…

December 06th, 2013 by Bookslinger

makes up for failure in the home.

[Garth] Brooks bowed out of his exceedingly successful career for a simple reason: He wanted to spend more time with his family, vowing that he would not return fulltime to music at least until all three of his daughters graduated high school.

It’s a decision he’s clearly not regretted –back in 2000, Brooks explained in an interview that he realized, while attending one of his kids’ soccer games, that “I had more fun than all 10 years of touring.”
