Pray for Metropolitan Basil
« on: February 04, 2010, 03:35:13 PM »
Please pray for the restoration of good health to His Eminence, Metropolitan Basil, the Byzantine Catholic Eparch of Pittsburgh as he is recovering from major surgery. He and Metropolitan Nicholas of Amissos have worked tirelessly over the years to lessen the pain that that festered among the faithful of each's flock arising from the bitter divisions that occurred in the twentieth century, which fractured many families and communities in the northeast United States. Lord have mercy, Eis polla eti Despota!

"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.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""
