Dancing on the Head of a Pin

There is a legend of St Thomas Aquinas asking "How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?" At this blog we ask all questions dealing with our faith and spirituality. Some are down to earth, rubber meets the road questions, while others are more lofty...like, how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

Out of date

A friend sent me an email concerning the lack of entries on this blog. He was right. Keeping a blog up to date every other week or so does little good for anybody. The same is also true for our faith. Keeping it up to date every now and then is not what God has in mind. It is very easy for us to update our faith once a week on Sunday, or every other week. But what happens Monday thru Saturday? How are we connecting with Christ constantly? There is a wonderful Russian classic about a man who heard a sermon on St Paul's statement that we should "pray without ceasing." The Russian pilgrim took it seriously and spent years trying to discover what this meant, traveling all over the country seeking wisdom from holy people. This was his life mission and nothing else was important. The story is a great example of taking our faith seriously and daily, not just every now and then.
