dust in the wind

SG-1, religion, Cam and Sam

This is a semi-review; mostly, random thoughts and musings (some theological) on the newest season 10 episode to air in the US: "A Line in the Sand."

So, SPOILERS if you have yet to watch it. My initial, unspoilery reaction: Wow, I didn't expect the second half of season 10 to be better than the first half. I'm enjoying this more than I'm thinking that it lacks in some way--in fact, I feel like I'm watching "real" SG-1, which I haven't really felt since "Moebius" and the end of season 8. Collapse )

In sum: Stargate SG-1 may actually yet win my respect for approaching the subject of God and religion. It hasn't yet, but these were miles closer than in any previous season. Also, any episode that brings me near tears is doing something right. :-)

I need a Cam icon. And a really good Sam Carter icon. Recs, anyone?

A prayer of St. Thomas Aquinas

Give us, O Lord, a steadfast heart, which no unworthy affection may drag downwards; give us an unconquered heart, which no tribulation can wear out; give us an upright heart, which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside. Bestow upon us also, O Lord our God, understanding to know you, diligence to seek you, wisdom to find you, and a faithfulness that may finally embrace you; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
