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.

Long Over-due Update

I'm sorry. Really, I don't know what else to say. Obviously, I'm on a sabbatical from blogging. And how hard would it have been to like, tell you. Well . . . harder than you think. (I think.) With the best intentions, I believed I could blog regularly, keep the day job, show up for physical therapy, meet my writing deadline with The Gatehouse, and adjust to my teenage son moving out because he desired the type of freedom I could not grant and stand before God in good conscience. I miss him. It hurts. But I must keep moving, believing sunnier days are on the horizon. Except on the days I can't. On those days I cry. This is life. A wonderful-awful mixture of things.

The first draft for How to Forgive What You'll Never Forget will be handed off this Wednesday. I'll likely blog for Thanksgiving and then after that it's back to the drawing board or in my case, writing board. In January, I'll introduce the first out of seven focus groups to the Bible Application.

Once the Bible Application is published, you will absolutely have access to it. Even in my absence, I still write for you. If you'd like to receive notices in regards to updates on the material, please sign up for email. As God as my witness, I will not stalk you. It's just a good way to keep you posted.

Lots of love and prayers to you!

 

Wendy
