To the Professor,  may his memory be eternal.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

To the Professor!
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

Unknown to me that it had been the Professor's birthday, I had snuggled into my couch today and started re-reading The Silmarillion.

Happy Birthday!
Memory Eternal!

I am genuinely impressed!  RE-READ The Silmarillion?!?!?!  I couldn't even get through it once!!  But...that was many, many years ago.  Perhaps I should try again.

Yeah, every time I read it, I get about 100% more out of it then I got the last time. I am as giddy as a school boy starting Christmas break every time I borrow it from the library.
