Quote of the Day – Fr. James V. Schall, S.J.

Solutio Problematis Omnes (aka "The Catholic Linker")

Lacking the pleasure of intellectual delight, we tend to seek a kind of pleasure that knows nothing of the intrinsic  purpose of knowledge.  Our minds do seek to know.  What is perhaps unique about Christianity is that it is a revelation that unabashedly  also addresses itself to intellect.   It recognizes that everyone, philosopher or not,  needs to be properly directed to the highest things, that to which we are ordered in the very structure of our being.  We also need first to be receivers, to be open to what is not ourselves so that we are able to respond to what is.

– Fr. James V. Schall
