Re: The opposite of nostalgia

I am mostly a "lurker" on this fascinating site, but I love reading the posts and thinking about them. I just wanted you to know that I read this one and it totally took my breath away. I too have lots of diaries and letters from my youth and I have always regretted that, through great trials (or so it seemed) I lost that early enthusiasm and fervor which I find so charming. This post has helped me see this in a very different light. I no longer regret that loss so much, because I realize I had much shedding of illusions to do (and still do) and I have actually moved closer to reality while my world seemed to crumble. Thanks for a moving and enlightening post, Katie.

I love, love, love both of these authors, and I love how you have put their ideas together in this post! It is really true that sitting around thinking about how much time I've wasted and how many opportunities I've missed only contributes to furthering the problem. I think I'll go home and do the next right thing. :)

Re: On Prayer, Both Second-Hand and Spontaneous

I loved this whole post, but this has made a terrific impression on me and, I think, will change my prayer forever!

(St. Teresa of Avila:)

[S]he who does not consider with whom she speaks, and what she asks, and who she is that asks, and of whom she asks, knows little of prayer, however much her lips may move…. But whoever shall accustom himself to speak with the majesty of God, as he would talk with his slave, without considering whether he speaks properly or no, but who speaks only what comes first into his head, or what he may have learnt by heart by having repeated it at other times—this I do not consider to be prayer.

Thank you both for these stories. I loved them. Even if sometimes there are no comments on a post you make, or very few, please know that this doesn't mean the posts are not read or appreciated, or that the personalist God isn't using them to touch someone personally!

What an absolutely delightful person she is! I started watching this and had to watch to the end.
