Be Still

To believe as a Christian means in fact entrusting oneself to the meaning that upholds me and the world, taking it as the firm ground on which I can stand fearlessly… to believe as a Christian means understanding our existence as a response to the word, the logos, that upholds and maintains all things.”

--Introduction to Christianity, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI), 1968

  1. Love the idea of understanding our existence as a response to the Logos that upholds and maintains all things. Belief puts us in touch and in communion with the power that is here and now creating the universe and holding it in existence. That is powerful!
