I wasn‘t expecting to do much more than trundle through this for my monthly review pile. But! You guys! It‘s sparking my mind and it‘s all I can do not to go grab a notebook and pen! This is a gem, and I‘m definitely going to be (re)reading Gaudete et Exsultate soon.

Mehso-so

Maybe it‘s because I‘ve been reading W. Bruce Cameron‘s books in the last few months, and I much prefer his voicing of dogs. Maybe it‘s that I think some of the reincarnation spirituality in this is bull. Maybe it‘s just timing. This was well-edited, I‘ll give it that. And it was a quick read. In the end, though, it was like getting a turkey burger when you were expecting a T-bone steak.

In which I settle down to catch up on some work reading. From what I‘ve seen so far, I can‘t wait to see the final product. This is going to be such a great gift for so many young women in my life.

“You‘re not alone, and you‘re not the one in charge,” Mother said gently. “Ask for help when you need it, and give help when you can. I think that is how we serve God—and each other and ourselves—in times as dark as these.”

Contentment is harder. It requires me to accept reality as I find it in this moment—the tasks I have to do today, the people I have to serve this hour, the flaws in myself and my life that I can‘t fix right now. Contentment means leaving the big picture to God while I muddle through the day-to-day. And I hate muddling.

“Praying for deliverance from fear is a crucial step for spiritual perfectionists. But before we can see freedom, we must recognize we are bound. That‘s often a harder step. Fear is a sneaky demon; it wears many disguises. And sometimes the religious voices we turn to for clarity and support only make us feel more afraid, embarrassed, and alone.”

I‘ll be honest: I wasn‘t sure what my takeaway would be from this one. It was in the pile I have to read and review for a monthly column. What, I wondered, would be the reason for the regular person to read this?

And there you have it. Do we know about life in China? Do we have any concept? Do we care?

This book isn‘t an unveiling as much as it is a straight on look. Cardinal Zen lays it out; he‘s direct and straightforward.

“There is no detective in England equal to a spinster lady of uncertain age with plenty of time on her hands.”

Had to pull over on my long drive because the rain was so bad. But it was such delightful company...

“You don‘t have to be a congenital perfectionist like me to have a problem with perfectionism. Nor must you demand flawlessness in every part of your life. Perfectionism is simply an addiction to control and a refusal to accept imperfections in some human endeavor.”

A Dog's Journey: A Novel | W. Bruce Cameron

Pickpick

I couldn‘t put this down...picking up the continuation of A Dog‘s Purpose and the threads of that story. This holds its own as a book and I do think you could read it on its own.

Cameron captures dogs so well; I couldn‘t read this without looking at the dogs in my life and wondering what their internal dialogue is like.

Cameron also creates an interesting viewpoint on life and perhaps also about life and the end of life.

Kreeft is as entertaining and spot-on as ever, and this wasn‘t as dry — or as heated — as I expected. Gave me a lot to think about.

Interested in artificial intelligence, technology, the way the future could be shaped by the intersection of the two? It‘s coming — the future and the dominance of AI. But what does that mean? Webb not only provides detailed analysis, an impressive bibliography, and a history that‘s multifaceted, but she also crafts storylines that support different decisions we could all make. Yes, us. You and me. (Also pictured, my next read.)

Smrloomis Interesting! And welcome to Litsy! 🥳 1mo
