I know it's easy to scorn the Jesuits for being a bad crew of Marxists and associated evildoers, but Ignatius Loyola was a great saint. Here's one of his prayers, the Suscipe.

Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding,
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own.

You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.

Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace,
that is enough for me.


God bless,

Rendering to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's is right and proper. However that implies an act of free will, which the Marxists don't have time for. Much easier to break a few eggs and take what you have.

I don't think Loyola would have a lot of time for the direction his order took, LL...

Funny you should say that, Anonymous. He liked it a lot.

I wish someone would talk to me like that.

What a spectacular view!

Such a powerful prayer, Jules! And what a tranquil sunset over the lake, beautiful.

Amazing view, and an amazing prayer. I am glad to hear Trump liked it, too.
