Notes on the week ending

Worthy and heavy posts, a little humour - all rather masking a pervasive sense of anxiety about job interviews, responses to them et al. I've been trying to keep balanced, rather than out and out positive (forcing a smiley mask would be dangerous I suspect). I hope there is some resolution in the next day or two, as my sleep patterns have slid a wee bit out of kilter which is a bit of a warning to me. Ora pro nobis.

That said, Saturday had me participating in a quiet day led by one of the most prolific and influential spiritual writers of the latter quarter of the 20th century - Gerard W Hughes SJ. A genuinely delightful man who left me with handful of spiritual nuggets I can go back and chew at leisure.

"Where your heart is, let your brain be also" - Baron Von Hugel

"At the final judgement, God will ask you one question and one question only: did you enjoy my creation?"

"Nothing so masks the face of God as religion" Martin Buber

"The centre of me is always and forever a pain, a curious, wild pain" Bertrand Russell.


  1. Great nuggets, frdougal. I love Martin Buber.
    Will keep you in my prayers.

  2. Keep the heid - it's a hard time of year to be having job interviews. Prayers for you and for all looking for work.
