Blogito ergo sum! Actually, as N.T. Wright averred, "'Amor, ergo sum:' I am loved, therefore I am." Among other things, I am a Roman Catholic deacon. This is a public cyberspace in which I seek to foster Christian discipleship in the late modern milieu in the diakonia of koinonia and in the recognition that "the Eucharist is the only place of resistance to annihilation of the human subject."
From not in way too long, to twice in a week- a deep diaconal bow to Rocco over at Whispers for reminding me that it was 32 years ago today that the world received a great surprise, a shock, a great gift, Karol Cardinal Wojtyla became Pope John Paul II. The Lord's way of saying yet again, "Behold, I do something new!" (Isa. 43:19)
Thanks, too, to Rocco for linking to this lovely video.
I could never even come close to adequately expressing how I feel about Pope John Paul II, the great affection I have for him. Papa Wojtyla, pray for us.
