Save us from admiration

Admiration is not enough.

Follow along

O Lord Jesus Christ … save us from the error of wishing to admire you instead of being willing to follow you and resemble you.

Søren Kierkegaard, (1813-1866) in Horton Davies, Ed., The Communion of Saints: Prayers of the Famous (Grand Rapids, MI: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company., 1990) p. 33

It is a momentous step to move beyond admiration to action. Let us walk with and resemble Jesus today. ~Fr. Dan

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
