Re: Catholic Corner pt II




Not necessarily the best poem, but you can tell Dietrich had been reading Rilke, which is something not many of us would be doing in a concentration camp.

Re: Catholic Corner pt II

Grew up in the Church, recited the Creed and such, but it never really resonated with me. However, Catholic mysticism has become an invaluable resource for me in my meditation practice. I wish my teachers at Catholic school had introduced me to John of the Cross after my first opening experience at age 12, b/c I was definitely in the dark night, and no one knew what to do with me. I am grateful that I found my way to his work eventually though, and I love talking to the Catholic monks who wander in and out of the zendo I attend.

Re: Catholic Corner pt II


A very important, often overlooked Catholic film which goes a good way towards questions nonbelievers have about the behavior of the Church during WWII.

Re: Catholic Corner pt II

“Observe that for the novelist who has remained Christian, like myself, man is someone creating himself or destroying himself. He is not an immobile being, fixed, cast in a mold once and for all. This is what makes the traditional psychological novel so different from what I did or thought I was doing. The human being as I conceive him in the novel is a being caught up in the drama of human salvation, even if he doesn’t know it.”
― François Mauriac

Re: Catholic Corner pt II

You don't need to be a Catholic to receive ashes on Ash Wednesday.

In fact, you don't have to be a Christian. Anyone can attend the service and receive ashes as long as you believe ashes to ashes.

It's a good opportunity for the curious to see what it's all about.

True enough. Protestants (and presumably other non-Catholic sects of Christianity) celebrate Ash Wednesday. I was raised in a number of different denominations, and people walked around with smudgy heads one day a year in all of them.

It's been so long since I attended church that every year it takes me about half the day to realize why I'm seeing so many folks with bad hygiene :-).
