My regular browser, Firefox, doesn’t support interesting things like YouTube, so I frequently have to use my backup browser, Internet Explorer, when people send me interesting things. As part of IE, I have a Startup page that contains information and links of interest to me, and one of the little — I don’t know what you call ’em — pin-ups, I’d call them, if my Startup page were a bulletin board — anyway, it’s a daily quote from C. S. Lewis, who I’m sure needs no introduction to anyone who reads this blog.
This was today’s:
|In the midst of a world of light and love, of song and feast and dance, [Lucifer] could find nothing to think of more interesting than his own prestige.|
I cannot get over this! Does this sound like our modern celebrities, or what?! For that matter — how often does it describe me?? In this Paschal season of sheer joy, “light and love, song and feast and dance” — “Let us be radiant, and with our whole heart let us say: Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and on those in the tombs bestowing Life!”
And when it becomes about Me again, I will do my very best to remember this quote from C. S. Lewis.
(C’mon, be honest: How many of you suspect, like me, that if he had been born fifty years later he would have become Orthodox??) 😉
