nominalism + Mandylion + sin catcher

November 14, 2007 1 comment

Mandylion, face of Jesus on cloth, iconARTS & IDEAS – (Fr Vallee) — turned in my reflection paper on the Christian religious icon “Mandylion.”  In class we discussed nominalism … “Can God make a square circle? or a rock too heavy for God to lift?”Aquinas says NO (can’t contradict himself) and William of Ockham says YES (can’t limit divine freedom).

LAUNDRY — Wednesday is my new laundry day and today was my first time at the new Pre-T house.  Even with a busy day [3 morning classes, worklist, holy hour & finsh a reflection paper], I fit in my laundry time.  As I was doing my drying, cleaning the “lint catcher” made me reflect on venial sins offered up at Mass — it could make for a good homily illustration.  I took the “sin catcher” thought to “holy hour” and, since I remembered I left the dryer on, I also prayed I don’t burn the house down.
