Wise words from Fr. Michael Himes

April 18, 2013 § Leave a comment

An excellent description of the human predicament:

“To be human is to be endlessly caught in a web of decisions among partial goods. It involves choosing between shades of grey, seldom if ever between absolute black and white. It means taking the risk of discerning the good and acting upon it insofar as you can see the good, knowing that you never see it with perfect clarity. To live and work and serve God and our brothers and sisters in the tangle of our minds demands infinite patience with ourselves and with one another.”

-Fr. Michael J. Himes, from Doing the Truth in Love: Conversations about God, Relationships and Service
