Lenten Tweets

In Christianity, Lent on March 28, 2009 at 4:35 pm

A selection of Lenten Tweets posted to Twitter:

  1. “Preach the Gospel always. When necessary, even use words.” (St. Francis). High standard. What does my life say without words?
  2. “Teach us to care and not to care. Teach us to sit still.” (T.S. Eliot, “Ash Wednesday.” Suggested by A. Esolen, Magnificat)
  3. Finished reading Richard John Neuhaus’ short book, As I Lay Dying. Worth pondering our end, during Lent.
  4. The rhythm of the Church Year (Advent, Lent, etc.) is a gracious aid to spiritual growth.
  5. If the Church has nothing to say, then golf or NY Times are better uses of Sun a.m. On the other hand . . .
  6. May our Lenten resolves be as solid a stone Cathedral floor. Too often we are “carpet Christians.”
  7. The world is often written in minor keys. In eternity we shall enjoy the majors.
