RIP Rene Girard

I had a series of posts some months ago about Rene Girard’s view of what Christ’s death meant.  Now comes word that Girard has died.

Christopher S. Morrissey talks about what he learned from Girard here.  He concludes:

So, how can we escape from grudges and conflict? Those who seek peace realize that true conversion happens when we turn away from all the world’s destructive myths and angry illusions.

I am grateful to René Girard for being a true teacher about the peace of the Gospel. He taught us how to purify our desires, and as he did so he was a gentle example of personal sanctity.
