Denying Reality Damages Us Intellectually, Morally, and Spiritually

​”Evil, be thou my good!” says Milton’s Satan—which, as C.S. Lewis notes, is like saying, “Nonsense, be thou my sense!”

To put anything, however much it seems ‘necessary’ or ‘prudent’ above the truth in our thought and speech, and above the spiritual good of others and ourselves in our action, is to tell Jesus that you do not love Him, and he takes our answer quite seriously.” Dr. Thadeus Kosinski

Frank Sheed, in his work Theology and Sanity, wrote: “Seeing God everywhere and all things upheld by Him is not a matter of sanctity, but of plain sanity, because God IS everywhere and all things are upheld by Him.”
