" "To attribute to God, and not to self, whatever good one sees in oneself; but to recognize always that the evil is one's own doing, and to impute it on one's self." -St. Benedict

This Man Had Eyes To See



“The human heart continues feeling today, those same impulses that Jesus denounced as the cause and root of impurity: selfishness in all its forms, malicious intentions, the base motives that so often inspire man's conduct.

But it seems as if at this moment in history we are witnessing something (the degradation of human love and a universal wave of impurity and sensuality) which, because of its gravity and extension, has not been experienced hitherto.

This debasement of man affects the central core of his being, the very essence of his personality and, given its world-wide dissemination, has to be considered an unprecedented historical phenomenon.”

(From The Eight Beatitudes by Jose Orlandis)
