The Weight of Glory

the-weight-of-gloryFyri 75 árum síðan (8 juni 1941) helt C.S. Lewis kendu prædiku sína  “The Weight of Glory” í Oxford. Prædikan verður av mongum mett at vera ein av teimum bestu prædikunum í 20. øld. Hetta kemst óiva av eginleikanum hjá Lewis til at fáa okkum at undrast yvir okkara longsul: “A man´s physical hunger does not prove that that man will get any bread; he may die of starvation on a raft in the Atlantic. But surely a man’s hunger does prove that he comes of a race which repairs its body by eating and inhabits a world where eatable substances exist. In the same way, though I do not believe (I wish I did) that my desire for Paradise proves that I shall enjoy it, I think it a pretty good indication that such a thing exists and that some men will. A man may love a woman and not win her; but it would be very odd if the phenomenon called “falling in love” occurred in a sexless world” (C.S. Lewis).

Tolle, lege!
