Same Blog, Same URL, New Title

I am experimenting with a new, shorter title that may remove some "barriers to entry" for those seeking wisdom. The blog URL stays the same. Although I am not a member of Opus Dei, I recall that "the Work" likes to use names for its works that do not necessarily broadcast immediately its Catholic identity. Is that a Machiavellian tactic? No. It just means that one wants to cast the net as wide as possible and invite and welcome all persons of goodwill to the table, to the symposium, whether Catholic or non-Catholic Christians or simply people of other religious traditions or no religious tradition seeking wisdom.

 Here is one definition of "logos" (whose Latin equivalent is "ratio"):

A principle originating in classical Greek thought which refers to a universal divine reason, immanent in nature, yet transcending all oppositions and imperfections in the cosmos and humanity. An eternal and unchanging truth present from the time of creation, available to every individual who seeks it. A unifying and liberating revelatory force which reconciles the human with the divine; manifested in the world as an act of God's love in the form of the Christ.
