Food for thought…

 Over at With Arms Wide Open I found an interesting quote that I wanted to share:

The society at large  is shaped by all sorts of pernicious influences, as evidenced by so much of what appears on our TV’s, both in the shows and the advertisements. And for many, these things are “normal.” But for us, our models are the Lord Jesus Christ, the Theotokos, and the saints of the Church, including the martyrs, the desert fathers, and the “fools for Christ;” they are the ones who are normal, in the Divine perspective- the one that counts– regardless of what our society thinks. (from the last post, “Socialization: Living Stones“)
