Your support makes our mission possible!
Your gift supports the vision of a Christian culture that utilizes "the passions" to foster intimacy with Christ and unity with his Church.
Mission EDIFY operates under the fiscal sponsorship of Women's Non-profit Alliance, a 501(c)3 parent organization.
What are the passions?
"The passions are the feelings, the emotions or the movement of the sensible appetite--natural components of human psychology--which incline a person to act or not act in view of what is perceived as good or evil. The principle passions are love and hatred, desire and fear, joy, sadness, and anger."
(Compendium CCC, 370. Libreria Editrice Vaticana, 2006) The Compendioum's source on this topic is the teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas.
I'm headed out of town to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday. This should be interesting as I have not seen him in three years. "Let the healing begin." Actually, I'm looking forward to it. Last year on my birthday he wrote in a card (he's always just signed his name) You're still a little girl in my eyes. I've waited forty-five years to hear something like that. So, I'm SO going to visit him.
Next post will be Monday afternoon: Confessions Of a Hypocrite. I'd intended to post today, but ran clean out of time!
Meet me here on Monday!
