In which I quote Fire of Mercy Heart of the Word and cite it correctly for the first time :P

I love this comment on Matthew 12:15--
“Blessed be that need and even that despair which destroys our illusion of well-being! Blessed be that illness which gives us wings to fly to the Physician!...Blessed be the mediocrity that teaches us that we cannot expect salvation from ourselves!” (Merikakis, Fire of Mercy, Heart of the Word II, p. 85) much as I hate my mediocrity and moments of ugliness, I know Merikakis is right. But how much more blessed is God, the Divine Physician! May all of his children fly to him always, to him alone who can heal us, and, imploring his mercy, receive it with thanksgiving and joy.
now I have to go back and clean up the rest of the citations...sigh.  Maybe someday I'll learn to do things right in the first place. ;P
     At least they should all be labeled and easy to find, praise be to God for that!
