Rebuke from Heaven

Today, it would seem, St. Louis Marie Grignon-de-Montfort accused me of "intellectual pride", and counted me among
numerous puffed-up scholars, conceited with critical spirits who have plenty to say against the best established and most solid practises of piety,
and then he suffered our poor benighted congregation the condecension "not to give them needless occasion of criticism".

Oh! The sting! But I'm going to try, ad experimentum as it were, to be shaped by the sting and see what comes of it.

Oremus pro invicem

And today, Happy Assumptionday! Magnificat anima mea Dominum, et exultavit spiritus meus in Deo salutari meo

I hope your defense rehearsal went well? Bless you in all things!

me said...

defense rehearsal went very well! many from my parish came to hear me speak philosophically on evildoing--more than usually gather for any parish function outside sunday Mass. but they didn't come out of interest in the topic so much as to show their support for me and for my studies, since they have been praying for me to finish my tesina this past full year.

God bless you, and grant you wisdom as you finish your dissertation!

Well, Hurrah!
