i was reading benedict's rule today and was struck by his language.
"what, dear brothers, is more delightful that this voice of the lord calling us? see how the lord in his love shows us the way of life. clothed then with faith and the performance of good works, let us set out on this way, with the gospel as our guide"
I'm struck so often by the power of this simple call. don't begrudge the calling of the lord, but delight in it. delight in not doing what ever the hell you want, chris, but doing another's will. something important here about what wittgenstein was after in saying 'what can be shown, cannot be said.'
anon, and +peace
