Remembering God

Jonah 3:1: "Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time, saying,"

On this second day of the New Year, it bears remembering what Phillip Cary writes as a comment on this verse: "The LORD is nothing if not persistent, always ready to begin again" (Jonah pg. 105- underlining emphasis mine). Of course, this "second time" was after Jonah's failed evasion of the word of the LORD the first time. God is not only persistent, but patient, even merciful. It pleases me that this remembrance is the 1,000th post on Καθολικός διάκονος.

Today we celebrate and commemorate two great church fathers, St. Basil the Great and St. Gregory the Theologian.
