The Counsel of Trent

writing is thinking

Sunday, July 04, 2010

I want to suffer, you want to suffer, we all want to suffer.


"But what if we don't want to suffer?"

Everyone, I think, wants, ultimately, to suffer, because, I think, everyone, ultimately, wants the highest degree of pleasure (and this comes only from virtue).

But, as Augustine said, "Not yet..."

I don't, yet, really want what I really really want.
