"Bad art may be forgiven; but to remain unmoved by beauty will not. Doubts may be forgiven; but a lack of wonder will not. Tilting at windmills may be forgiven; but allowing our neighbors to be grinded in the gears will not. Denying the existence of the Creator may be forgiven; but ignoring the glories of creation will not."

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Ἀνδρῶν δὲ ἄσμα δευτερότριτε βρέμεις.

A very interesting video about St. George's church in Bethlehem and how it draws both Christian and Muslim pilgrims.

This I would call natural, non ideological ecumenism, with no agenda, the sort that just happens. The only good sort of ecumenism.

Many happy years!
Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.
