Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Bon Mot for this day

I came across this interesting quote while doing some meditative reading today.

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

St. Josemaria Escriva; The Way: the essential classic of Opus Dei's founder; Image Books, Doubleday Press, 1982 (originally published 1939 in Spain) p. 47.
