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.

Journal Entry 1/16/2015

It's 6:45. I peer out the window, holding a cup of hot coffee on a cold winter morning. The trees form silhouettes amidst the gentle ray of pink rising from beneath the fence line. I breathe in and invite the rising sun into my fear of falling.

"Father, what do you see when you watch me stumble into obscurity."

"I see you, my child . . . doing the best you can."

I exhale.

 

You are not alone,

Wendy
