1-2-3 Meme

In Books, catholic, celebration, christianity, lent, meme, Spirituality, tag, Thomas Merton on February 6, 2008 by Eliacín

I have been tagged for the 1-2-3 Meme by Mark at The game is to grab the book nearest to you and turn to page 123. Find the 5th sentance and share the next 3 sentances with everyone. Then you tag five people.

My sentence is from Seasons of Celebration by Thomas Merton a book I picked up this morning because of it’s brief chapter about Ash Wednesday .

Seasons of Celebration – p. 123, sentece # 5

Blessed and sanctified by the sign of the cross, the ashes become a “remedium salubre” (health-givng medicine) and they bring sanitas (wholeness,cleanness) to the body, as well as protection to the soul (animae tutelam), both of these availing for the remision of sins.


I tag Jason, Christine, Pat, Matt and David.

Update : Justin and Eugene were tagged first by Steve.

On the contrary: every act of forgiveness enthrones justice; it draws attention to its violation precisely by offering to forego its claims. Moreover, forgiveness provides a framework in which the quest for properly understood justice can be fruitfully pursued. […]
