What are the chances? I have never even heard of Bertrand Russell in my life! Jerome was watching this with me, and as soon as I heard his name mentioned, I told him I had just did a blog post about this guy right before he came over! This was the climax of the whole movie! The whole context of all this was way too coincidental to be accidental. I have been feeling a lack of encouragement lately and have been praying for more inspiration... even yesterday morning. The beginning of the Peter Kreeft talk was about seeking God with all your heart (Deuteronomy 4:29 ) and those that do this and find are reasonable AND happy. Last night before I went to bed, I REALLY felt God talking to me in a profound way saying... "See! You seek, you find, and I make you happy!"

I've been listening to these CDs put out by Lighthouse Catholic Media. They started a program at my church, and they are now selling them for 3 bucks! Anyway, this is a portion of one I bought and listened to today! I was happy part of it was on Youtube! I was also happy that he quoted Blaise Pascal. I have been reading more of his writings online lately. The picture that goes with the audio is perfect because this is my favorite place in the world! Right there in that shot! I've been to this place twice and both times it was a surreal experience to be sitting there in this square where Peter was executed! I think it's the most beautiful city in the world!
A couple of weeks ago I found this video ( I know too much youtubing!) of David Wilcox, ( just about my favorite artist to see in concert) explaining one of his songs called "Vow of Silence" off of his new album. The song took on a whole new meaning to me when I heard it explained. Now I think it is really beautiful. I wish the audio was alittle better though! I am assuming that he is talking about the same Philosopher that Peter Kreeft is talking about here... Bertrand Russell. Peter Kreeft's answer to this problem rings forth so much truth, as does the guitar's answer! If anyone is interested in listening to Peter Kreeft's whole CD, just ask... It's worth listening to.
