Weil: the good thief

Friday, April 15, 2022
    Good Friday
    And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved...
    —Joel 2:32 (NIV)
    Of all the beings other than Christ of whom the Gospel tells us, the good thief is by far the one I most envy.
    ... Simone Weil (1909-1943), Waiting for God, Emma Craufurd, tr., Putnam, 1951, p. 59 (see the book)
    See also Joel 2:32; Luke 23:39-43; Rom. 8:1-2; 1 Cor. 1:18; Gal. 2:19-20; Eph. 2:4-5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I have received Your grace through no merit of mine.
