Sanctity and Learning

The hour is late, and soon I will turn the page on this work of mine. But not yet. In light of that, the following, which I read this morning, helps me keep my head down and not look too far beyond today:

Paradoja: es más asequible ser santo que sabio, pero es más fácil ser sabio que santo.

San Josemaría Escrivá, Camino, No. 282

Paradox: It is more attainable to be a saint than a scholar, but it is easier to be a scholar than than a saint.

Saint Josemaría Escrivá, The Way, No. 282

Thanks, dear reader, should you ever find me, for being my gadfly.
