good shadow – Hail Father

walking shadowMASS – (Fr Joseph) — a story of a “Good Man” offered any miracle from an angel.  He refuses “the gift of healing,” “the ability to change sinners righteous,” & the opportunity to be a “sign of virtue.”  He refuses all so that he gets no credit and God get the glory.  Even though he says “grace is enough,” the angel gives his shadow healing power so people don’t focus on him, but God.

MODERN PHILOSOPHY – (Fr Santos) — “SELF” is the primary “innate idea” (but God?)

ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY – (Fr Santos) — started Plato’s “Phaedo” — the first philosophical arguement for the immortality of the soul.

ART & IDEAS – (Fr Vallee) — we began with the “Hail Father” and discussed more on Socrates to Aristotle.  “Universals, ideas & substances dominate.”  … “Plato divides the soul into the appetitive, emotional, and rational parts, which were located in the abdomen, the chest and the head, respectively.” … “Aristotle’s metaphysics is the elaboration of the four causes: formal, fina, material & efficient.”

DAY of REFLECTION — a 24 hour day of reflection starts today at 5:15pm and goes until tomorrow’s Vigil Mass.
