Videte itaque fratres quomodo caute ambuletis non quasi insipientes sed ut sapientes redimentes tempus quoniam dies mali sunt.

"See therefore, brethren, how you walk circumspectly: not as unwise, but as wise: redeeming the time, because the days are evil."  (Eph. 5:13-14)

Important Things (In My Somewhat-Humble Opinion):

  • Liturgy that is actually Divine (whether in the East or in the West)

  • Family life lived as a way of theosis

  • Philosophy that actually seeks truth

  • Theology that acts like it should: a perfection of mind that discursively reflects on the supernatural object of revelation, though ultimately giving way to the desire for something more than itself in contemplation

  • Baroque music

  • Beer that makes you pause; scotch that makes you want a cigar; Cabernet Savignons of all sorts

  • Not least: friendship—even with those who may find my views a bit strident
