“Sinners lick the earth, that is to say, love earthly pleasures.”
Pascal, Pensées, #666.
Our lifestyles devoted to earthly pleasures while marginalizing Christ — let’s depict them bluntly: “licking the earth.” But here is what we were created for: “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!” (Psalm 34:8).There is nothing degrading in Christ. Only satisfying, uplifting, humanizing.
