Re: Catholicism and Personalism: Not Such Strange Bedfellows

    Thanks for the wonderful and thoroughly 'down to earth' insights. Not only priests but saints, as well, have an astonishing range of 'personalities' that God seems to delight in and 'use'.  Look at Father Damien of the lepers.  He was a coarse, gruff peasant, full of peasant values and also had to struggle with a bad temper. Once he received a good sum of money and intended to use it only for his Catholic lepers.  His assistant begged with him an entire night NOT to do this terrible and narrow-minded act.  The next day, in tears,  he thanked the man, "You saved me from committing an awful sin!"  And HE was a saint!  God cuts 'personality' some slack that He would not for pride and Phariseeism.

This article by Andrew is my 'gold standard' for Catholic vs. Nazi ethics. The article itself is a 'thing of Catholic beauty'.

  I am overly emotional and should have studied and cross-checked the article more carefully before referencing it.  It seems suspicious to me now for a few small reasons. But...not at all suprising.   I couldn't Google it up again though I tried all diffferent sorts of code words.

Sorry! I should have book marked it. It was a few days ago. You should remove the above if you wish.  I see what you mean.

Stay informed
