Theological Notebook--Tolstoy on Christ

Another nugget Fr. Patrick tossed my way. The longer I think about it, the more I just have to say, "Daaaaamn!" The shape of our own lives are the most fundamental form of sculpture.

There are many reasons for the failure to comprehend Christ's teaching...but the chief cause which has engendered all these misconceptions is this: that Christ's teaching is considered to be such as can be accepted, or not accepted, without changing one's life.

–Leo Tolstoy
