"The glory of God is man fully alive, and the life of man is the vision of God." -St Irenaeus of Lyon

Poignant thought

As I am adjusting to a new community, I find myself rapidly approaching the “disenchanted” stage of cultural entry.  It’s easy enough to know the process as I have survived through it many times.  Needless to say, this quote from St Jerome struck a chord.

A friend is long sought, hardly found, and with difficulty kept.
-St. Jerome
