Beloved, see what a marvellous thing love is; its perfection is beyond our expression. Who can truly love save those to whom God grants it? We ought to beg and beseech him in his mercy that our love may be genuine, unmarred by any too human inclination.

Pope St. Clement I

"Let us never assume that if we live good lives we will be without sin; our lives should be praised only when we continue to beg for pardon. But men are hopeless creatures, and the less they concentrate on their own sins, the more interested they become in the sins of others. They seek to criticize, not to correct. Unable to excuse themselves, they are ready to accuse others."

-Saint Augustine

Putting a roast in the slow cooker when people are going to be home to smell it cooking ought to be a recognized form of torture.

I'm used to hearing recordings of my speaking voice because of my day job, but hearing recordings of my singing still gives me pause.

It's not that it sounds bad to me, because it doesn't, but it sounds so *different* than it sounds inside my head, it's like listening to someone else.

Fascinating thoughts to ponder from St. Jerome:

"Moses, one man, obtains God’s pardon for six hundred thousand armed men, and Stephen prays for his persecutors. When they are with Christ, will they be less powerful? Paul says that two hundred and seventy-six souls were granted to his prayers, whilst they were in a ship with him. Shall he close his lips after death, and not mutter a syllable for those who throughout the world have believed in his gospel?"

"If Apostles and martyrs, whilst still in the flesh and still needing to care for themselves, can pray for others, how much more will they pray for others after they have won their crowns, their victories, their triumphs?"

OK. Some people keep rating the app one star because I don't block an instance.

Unfortunately, their lack of comprehension concerning the Fediverse (manipulated by some propaganda) make they think that the app is not safe to use.

You have every tools with the app to avoid interacting with people you don't want to see.

🚨 Foreigners crossing certain Chinese borders are being forced to install malware on their Android phones.

"The malware downloads a tourist’s text messages, calendar entries, and phone logs, as well as scans the device for over 70,000 different files."

July is going to be an interesting month... For the first time, I'm going to try a "working vacation" since I burned all my accrued vacation days when my father-in-law was in the hospital in May.

I have 2 weeks after I come back before I have a Handel solo at my Episcopal church job, which I will somehow have to practice while I'm on vacation as well.

This is going to be interesting.

“If anyone would like to acquire humility, I can, I think, tell him the first step. The first step is to realise that one is proud. And a biggish step, too. At least, nothing whatever can be done before it. If you think you are not conceited, it means you are very conceited indeed.” — C.S. Lewis

"We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of our Father's love for us and our real capacity to becomethe image of his Son."

I just got a text message saying something from Ascension Press is going to be delivered today. I have a vague recollection of having pre-ordered something a couple months ago, but no idea what it is.

I mean, I could search my emails to find out, but what's the fun in that?

I don't know why it only just occurred to me to make a Trello board for my repertoire to keep track of what stage various things are in. I should have done this ages ago.

"What, in short, is the purpose of grace - with the infused virtues that flow from it - but to sweeten the yoke of Christ, to facilitate the practice of virtue, to make you joyful in danger, and victorious in temptation?
