Decompression Week: Trying to Eliminate “Hurry”

Christianity’s Misconceiving of St. Thomas and the Questioner

"Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe."

The Mystery Blogger Award

Guten tag, friends! *exhales* I am exhausted. I have taken on more hours at work, decided to transfer to the online division of my university due to my lovely friend COVID, and have scarce had the chance to write, read, or study my beloved German.

Fiat Mihi Secundum Verbum Tuum: What I Intend to Learn from the Lives of Female Saints

The Happy Trinity is her home: nothing can trouble her joy. She is the bird that evades every net: the wild deer that leaps every pitfall. Like the mother bird to its chickens or a shield to the arm'd knight: so is the Lord to her mind, in His unchanging lucidity.... She may walk among … Continue reading Fiat Mihi Secundum Verbum Tuum: What I Intend to Learn from the Lives of Female Saints
