Found it at Goodwill. Didn't make it very far before I gave up. Reminded me of some dialogue from the sitcom Newsradio:

Dave Nelson: Are you referring to the letter that described you as Andy Rooney without a sense of humor?
Bill McNeal: Nonsense. Andy Rooney is Andy Rooney without a sense of humor.

Soup is funny...
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

I never got too far on the St. Isaac the Syrian book, but I found The Life of Repentance and Purity by Pope Shenouda III of Alexandria. There are many of his books at https://www.stgr.org/resources/
Quote from: Michael, Pope of Rome
We should fortify ourselves with the truths of the Faith. Our main focus should be to become saints. Unfortunately some spend much of their time in either trying to sort things out or what is worse, trying to convince the world that they are right. If we all aim at sanctifying ourselves, God will intervene and He will straighten things out. We cannot do it without Him.

The Ladder of Divine Ascent.

My favorite section is about the baker who, while working, had himself believe it was God ordering him to work and not men, and after many years had tears and penance before God.
“God,”
The words rumbled:
“There is much suffering,
But the church is alive. "

 “How long, Archpriest, are we to suffer thus?” I answered: “Until our very death, Markovna!” And she replied, with a sigh: “So be it, Petrovich, let us plod on.” - Life of Avvakum by Himself

Nastasya, Nastasya, be
patient and do not cry:
Not every happiness
Comes in the clothing of fortune.

St. Avvakum, pray for us!

St. Ambrose, pray for us!

I'm not reading much lately, and I love to read. I'm still on maybe page 45 of 'The Hobbit.' Read a couple paragraphs last night.

This is killing me.

Can't concentrate. I've been taking all these medications, because of my medical problems. Also, I'm depressed, which I've been for a long time, but it's worse now.

What's that quote from a saint about reading a few chapters of the Gospels and a Pslam a day to ease the mind?

I feel that when reading St. Paul's epistles. They immediately give me peace, calm, hope and joy. All my anxieties, worries, sadness, etc. disappear. I never tire of reading them, I want to have the same passion and faith St. Paul does.

Has anybody read any works by  Nicholas E. Denysenko?  He has a book coming out in November about the Ukraine Church the past hundred years.  I thought it would be interesting reading if he was open to both sides:  https://www.amazon.com/Orthodox-Church-Ukraine-Century-Separation/dp/0875807895/ref=pd_rhf_gw_p_img_4?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=7RTE0V9V4856B8663M1T

Was just treated to several chapters by Hugo regarding how much he hates the Catholic Church (and much of the pathetic criticism could be applied here as well).

It's really quite hilarious how much he despises those in monasteries. Envy, perhaps
“God,”
The words rumbled:
“There is much suffering,
But the church is alive. "

 “How long, Archpriest, are we to suffer thus?” I answered: “Until our very death, Markovna!” And she replied, with a sigh: “So be it, Petrovich, let us plod on.” - Life of Avvakum by Himself

Deconstructing Theodicy: Why Job Has Nothing to Say to the Puzzle of Suffering, by David B. Burrell

I'm guessing (from the back cover) that the subtitle is a bit of a head fake: it's not that Job has nothing instructive for us, but rather that the answer Job finds is in surrendering to God and letting go of the need to understand and control everything.

Smacked with some insomnia last night, I started re-reading The Two Towers.

Entirely different note, I am (re-)reading Jerome Kodell OSB's The Eucharist in the New Testament. Some of the discussion about historical critical analysis is a little light (which — by lack of detail — makes it boring), but I enjoyed the discussion about how the protoliturgy actually shaped the telling of the Supper in the biblical texts.
