Brennan Manning RIP

I am saddened this morning to hear of the passing of Brennan Manning. His life and work were an inspiration to many, and he will be sorely missed.

“We see our darkness as a prized possession because it drives us into the heart of God. Without mercy our darkness would plunge us into despair – for some, self-destruction. Time alone with God reveals the unfathomable depths of the poverty of the spirit. We are so poor that even our poverty is not our own: It belongs to the mysterium tremendum of a loving God.” – Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. Amen.
