It’s an exception

26 August 2017

Christianity’s a strange life, a weird phenomenon. All the religions of the world are logical. Christianity’s the exception. It’s faith which Christ gave us once and for all, and this is proof that it alone is true. All the other religions are logical, but ours is beyond reason. It has to do with a fact which is revealed to us. We don’t judge that fact, but when we accept it, it informs us. This is why Christianity has always seemed foolish to the sages of this world. And monastic obedience confirms precisely this foolishness. May we be worthy of accepting and implementing Christ’s obedience.
