This blog is a record of some of my reflections on the depth and richness of Catholic truth, and how it may be made more relevant and attractive to an increasingly relativistic society (in company with truth’s two siblings – beauty and goodness).
I also rather like poetry, and so may occasionally post quotations from some of my favourite writers from time to time. Here’s a personal favourite of mine for starters:
I kiss my hand
To the stars, lovely-asunder
Starlight, wafting him out of it; and
Glow, glory in thunder;
Kiss my hand to the dappled-with-damson west:
Since, tho’ he is under the world’s splendour and wonder,
His mystery must be instressed, stressed;
For I greet him the days I meet him, and bless when I understand.
– Gerard Manley Hopkins, from The Wreck of the Deutschland
