Something about knowing ourselves

Artist: Jan van Eyck

Here's something I came across today. It gives me pause. There is much to think about here and much to pray about as well. It seems to me that it could be a good focus for Advent to keep this assertion as much in mind as we're capable of managing:

The things that we love tell us who we are.

-- St. Thomas Aquinas

  3. And then what? Who gets to judge this information?
    Am I allowed to think you're a typical, overprivileged white woman who likes cats and who gets her money in ways 99.9% easier than the rest of the world because of the things YOU like? Is that legitimate?
