Some recent discussion of Hans Urs von Balthasar over at Chris Tessone’s blog caused me to rummage around my bookshelf. Here’s one item from his book of aphorisms, The Grain of Wheat:
Problems do not exist in order to be solved; we can never get “behind” Being. We always look with mild contempt on everything we have solved. Problems should always become more luminous in the light of the great mystery in which we live, move, and have our being. A sense of mystery is a Catholic sense. (p.21)
I’ll try to catch up on posting this weekend, as I have not planned any 1000 mile journeys!
