BUILDING VIRTUE...Fran's Friday Forum...!!!

By
Title Insurance with Patriot Land Transfer, Inc.

If we are human we all have VIRTUES AND VICES...!!!

 

OF COURSE, If we truly call ourselves ‘CHRISTIAN’, we should desire to follow CHRIST closely by building on virtue and diminishing our vices...

 

NOW...no one is perfect, but we are told to STRIVE FOR PERFECTION...!!!

 

IT IS NOT IMPORTANT to achieve perfection...it is only important that we AIM FOR PERFECTION...

 

Years ago my daughter convinced me that mnemonic devices were useful...after much argumentation I finally conceded and have tried to incorporate mnemonic techniques into my regular life scheme...AND SO...

 

FOR VIRTUE...I have come up with: Victory In Regard To Usual Events...and with a little help from MATTHEW KELLY’S writings...that translates into: ALWAYS DOING THE NEXT RIGHT THING...

 

SOMETIMES it IS more important to focus on THE JOURNEY than the destination...!!!

 

It seems much easier to grow in virtue by taking small productive steps than repeatedly attempting giant leaps...!!! We may stumble a bit at times, but we don’t crash as often...!!!

 

SO...HAVE A GREAT AND BLESSED WEEKEND as you PRACTICE YOUR VIRTUE BUILDING...!!!

Kristin,

Unfortunately, so do I...We must set a good example for them...St. Francis told his disciples to preach the Gospel...using words if you must...!!!

Thanks,   Fran

I strive to practice what I preach! And I also open my mouth and talk to people about what the Lord requires.
