What a great C.S. Lewis quote! Although saying that is redundant, really--his writings abound with highly quotable tidbits of wisdom (she wrote in the wordiest manner possible).

C.S. Lewis is the gift that keeps on giving, so thank you for sharing.

Re: The Outsourced Self?

This is an interesting topic. About surrogate pregnancies, I remember hearing about a woman who outsourced her pregnancy in order to keep her figure. There is no serious defense for that. However, what if a couple, for whatever reason, can't have a child. Is it wrong to solicit different housing for the biological parents' child outside the mother's womb? For example, if her body can't support, or rejects, a baby, is it wrong to outsource that? I guess what I'm asking here is, how big a role does intent play in the morality of this particular outsourcing?

This whole post is amazing! By the way, thank you for pointing out that by accepting [theistic] evolution, a Catholic is not going against the Church.

In the Evolution vs. Creationism debate, the study of the physical process of evolution seems to get mixed up with the theological debate of whether or not there was a Creator/God involved, leading to a pitiful pair of conclusions: either you're a religious creationist or an atheist evolutionist. Why couldn't God, who created the entire universe, have used his imagination in how he made us?  

PS--You have some lovely children there. 

Stay informed
