“Dios no es una idea, sino esa totalidad viviente de la realidad que no puede ser vista por el ojo físico del científico, sino solo por la mirada del místico, por el ojo interior del amor”. Paul Tillich, Theology of Culture

    The lamp of the body is your eye. When your eye is sound, then your whole body is filled with light, but when it is bad, then your body is in darkness.Lk 11:34
