The pride of faith

There is a pride of faith, more unforgivable and dangerous than the pride of the intellect. It reveals a split personality in which faith is “observed” and appraised, thus negating that unity born of a dying-unto-self, which is the definition of faith. To “value” faith is to turn it into a metaphysical magic, the advantages of which ought to be reserved for a spiritual elite.

–Dag Hammarskjold
(1905-1961)

The dream come true

boy and dog copy

Forgiveness is the answer
to the child’s dream
of a miracle by which
what is broken is made whole again,
what is soiled is made clean again.

Dag Hammarskjold
(1905-1961)

When we cease to believe

Bello y maravilloso!!!

God does not die on the day when we cease to believe in a personal deity, but we die on the day when our lives cease to be illumined by the steady radiance, renewed daily, of a wonder, the source of which is beyond all reason.

–Dag Hammarskjold
(1905 – 1961)
