The LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.
With one breath we were made, and with another re-made. A wonderful parallel I would have been oblivious to were I not reading the Catechism in a year.
“Politics and political office are not and never have been the method and means by which we can govern ourselves in peace and dignity and honor and security, but instead our national refuge for our incompetents who have failed at every other occupation by means of which they might make a living for themselves and their families; and whom as a result we would have to feed and clothe and shelter out of our own private purses and means. The surest way to be elected to office in America is to have fathered seven or eight children and then lost your arm or leg in a sawmill accident: both of which – the reckless optimism which begot seven or eight children with nothing to feed them but a sawmill, and the incredible ineptitude which would put an arm or a leg in range of a moving saw – should already have damned you from any form of public trust.”
Having just finished Go Down, Moses, this little gem just confirms his genius.
I can’t understand why all those in the 1% who support the 99% think the only way for they can help is to pay higher taxes: instead of maybe supporting one of those thousands of cash strapped nonprofits.
So excited for this album. Four amazing artists, one record.
