Serving God in the mode of passion is dangerous. Passion is a force which all too often degenerates into pure malice and rage.
I like Vincent because I sense that he is a good person at heart - but emotions are a good servant and a poor master.
Meditating on God, serenity and eternity is far more healthy than spinning into orbits of rationally-flimsy conjecture.
This would probably be a good time for anyone who hasn't read it yet to pick up a copy of Pat Conroy's Beach Music, or his Great Santini.
Or if your in a really dark mood, Gene Wolfe's Urth of the New Sun pentology, or CS Lewis Space Trilogy. .
