Waking up

"I have suddenly woken up to the fact that somebody needs to be teaching theology the way St. Augustine did and not the way textbooks in seminaries do. Someone should be able to find the Living God in scripture- and this is his word- and then lead others to find him there and all theology properly ends in comtemplation and love and union with God- not ideas about Him and a set of rules about how to wear your hat."
---Thomas Merton, The Road To Joy, pg. 172.
