searching for communion
"To be human is to suffer, shudder and struggle courageously in the face of inevitable death. To think deeply and live wisely as a human being is to meditate on and prepare for death. The quest for human wisdom requires us to learn how to die—penultimately in the daily death of bad habits and cruel viewpoints and ultimately in the demise of our earthly and temporal bodies."
