Quote for the Week

"The thin pages of my Bible crackle as I turn them, as though fire is trapped under the ink. I am reminded of the haunting words of the prophet Jeremiah:

If I say, ‘I will not mention his word
    or speak any more in his name,’
his word is in my heart like a fire,
    a fire shut up in my bones.
I am weary of holding it in;
    indeed, I cannot. (Jeremiah 20:9)

"It seems as though somehow this book cages the same flames – but barely. Just under the surface of the words a great conflagration seethes, yearning to break out. Jesus warned us: 'I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!' (Lk 12:49). So perhaps we, who are the kindling, should be wary. Scripture is not safe. It should only be approached with the greatest caution, since every time this text is opened it has the potential to spark off the page, spread, burn and consume. The two disciples who walked with Jesus on the road to Emmaus discovered this; as they later reflected on their experience, one asked the other: 'Were our hearts not burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?' (Lk 24:32). Every time I read, then, I know I am in danger of catching fire."
