Knowledge and Love

Only knowledge gained through experience, the fruit of living and suffering, fills the heart with the wisdom of love…

It is not the results of our own speculation, but the golden harvest of what we have lived through and suffered through, that has the power to enrich the heart and nourish the mind. 

-Karl Rahner from “Encounters with Silence”


Photo is of a heart-shaped rock that I found in a gravel driveway while I was worrying about starting this blog. What do I know anyway?

So I share this heart with all of you.
