March 2015

It is very easy to be servants of the word without disturbing the world: a very spiritualized word, a word without any commitment to history, a word that cannot sound in any part of the world because it belongs to no part of the world. A word like that creates no problems, starts no problems.

Hymn of the day

by Richard on March 15, 2015

Come away to the skies, my belovèd, arise

On this festival day, come exulting away,
And with singing to Zion return.

And with singing to paradise go.
Now with singing and [...]

More shouldst thou have, if I had more.

No longer mine, but thine I am;
Guard thou thine own, possess it whole,
Cheer [...]
