St. John Ladder was one of the first characteristically Eastern writers I ever read.

As ever-blooming fruits you offer the teachings of your God-given book,
O wise John, most blessed, while sweetening the hearts of all them
that heed it with vigilance; for it is a ladder from the earth to the Heaven
that confers glory on the souls that ascend it, and honor you faithfully.
In love did God create the world; in love does he guide it ...; in love is he going wondrously to transform it. --Abba Isaac

Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity. --Climacus

Since when did being nice become synonymous to being a Christian?

Since the epistle of James was written (before the Gospels, and possibly before anyone else, including St. Paul) :P

I just got into an argument with someone on facebook who is convinced that the Church is going to bless same sex marriages in the near future and is sooper dooper excited about that.  Why do I bother with such arguments? I wasted a good afternoon on tripe.  >:(

Tripe is tasty.  Facebook is stupid.

Fun trivia for the day: Andy Serkis figured out how to produce his classic "gollum" sound by watching his cat cough up a hairball.

It's snowing in Helsinki. I know it's Annunciation but this is ridiculous. I guess the Mother of God decided to make a little practical joke.

There's that brief hour during the third week of July...
