Quotes

“It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest most
uninteresting person you can talk to may one day be a creature which, if you saw it now, you would be
strongly tempted to worship, or else a horror and a corruption such as you now meet, if at all, only in a
nightmare. All day long we are, in some degree helping each other to one or the other of these destinations.
It is in the light of these overwhelming possibilities, it is with the awe and the circumspection proper to
them, that we should conduct all of our dealings with one another, all friendships, all loves, all play, all
politics. There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts,
civilizations – these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke
with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit – immortal horrors or everlasting splendors.”–C.S. Lewis

“Christ is the light that allows people to see things in their fullness. The precise and
intended effect of such a light is to see Christ everywhere else. In fact, that is my
only definition of a true Christian. A mature Christian sees Christ in everything and
everyone else. That is a definition that will never fail you, always demand more of
you, and give you no reasons to fight, exclude, or reject anyone.”–Richard Rohr
