The Curate’s Awakening (Part 2)

An easy mind may take a shroud on its shoulders for wings, but when trouble comes and it wants to fly, then it knows the difference.

Absolutely love this first quotation. Had it shown to be true in an area of my own life just this morning; how easily we confuse what liberates with what enslaves!

When does one need love but at the time of death? And yet you come talking of love with the same voice that has recently been telling me that the grave is the end of it all. I will not be loved with the love that can calmly accept such a fate. And I will never love any man who believes that in the end even love will be swallowed up in a bottomless abyss.

At the end of the day this book was something of a love story. The same could be said of the universe, and therein lies the greatest argument that there exists more than what the naked eye can see.

    Just read ALL of McDonald’s works. So far I’ve read The Curates Awakening, The Fisherman’s Lady (terribly named by the translator), The Marquis’ secret (the 2nd and better half of TFL), and just finished The Baron’s Apprenticeship. ALL fantastic. Even if the story gets a bit slow, the theology gets you thinking. Happy Reading!
