"Every man lives confusedly in darkness until he is willing to enter into light by exiting the womb of his life and leaves the safety of that environment. He has to make mistakes, he has to take chances, he has to be willing to be cut down by critics and applauded by praisers even at times ignoring what they say, while he finds out for himself what is true and false, and even then he'll never really know a thing until he leaves comfort behind. He must disregard everything told to him in all the safe passages he's traveled, and those tubes and tunnels. It's only when he's free of 'back there' will he understand what he left behind.
Men will always be strangers to one another and themselves unless each learns by trail and error and ascertains the truth, that what he believed was only theory, and until he applied it he was but a theorist and not a realist. Truth has a way of cutting through nonsense. He must make his bones, and sometimes he must pay some very big dues, but in the end he'll know truth. What he knew before may have been right but it wasn't until he questioned it, and applied it will it sink in and make sense.
The cause of any man's confusion is that he never found himself but finding means searching, and a halfhearted attempt often comes from halfhearted men who in the end are just kidding themselves."~Michael Kurcina
The world is filled with dead men and dying flowers, sullen crowds and crippled hours, solemn bands and casket drivers, baby cradles and the things that have been and could be…Good God give us purpose. We battle against age and nothing. Bleak houses and empires crumble." Every second offers the chance to start over but one small turn to look behind us and our view upon the future changes like Lot at Gomorrah. Look back into the past of dead leaves and old gutters or brave something ahead. Reexamine old wounds and redress ancient injuries. Again, and again and again….
Here is art about life, death, God, virtue and honor. Take action. Live deliberately. Live vitally. The Saint Factory is for those who want to make a difference in this world. Here we honor heroes.
