Elizabeth Scalia on the struggle with intrinsic disorder :
I am intrinsically disordered when it comes to food, and it doesnt really matter how I became so. Whether it is due to a genetic pre-disposition, or a habit of psychological bufferingor some combination of nature and nurturethe fact remains that I am disordered, and I must deal with it. Every day. Sometimes hour by hour, sometimes minute by tempted minute.
Also today, Patrick Beeman on the Catholicism of Rich Mullins :
From his early life, Mullins admitted to being intrigued by the beauty of the Catholic Church and attracted to its mystery. In 1991, he was interviewed and quoted as saying I think I would like to be a monk. I really considered Catholicism a few years ago, but there were some things that I just couldnt reconcile. Like all Evangelicals who consider entering the Catholic Church, Rich had theological difficulties to overcome.
