"Lenten practices of giving up pleasures are good reminders that the purpose of life is not pleasure. The purpose of life is to attain to perfect life, all truth and undying ecstatic love – which is the definition of God. In pursuing that goal we find happiness."

when the negative thoughts come: talk to Jesus

Jesus is the friend of people who are willing to admit that they have problems. If we understand that we have issues, if we recognize that we have stuff we cannot conquer, then Jesus is near to us.

You don’t have to be good to be Jesus’s friend. You just have to be honest.

Wow. This guy, I mean, look at it! Truly a master artist. This isn’t even his main subject, that would be his mind blowing Star Wars stuff which I had to bite my hand not to include.
