Voice of the Day: One’s virtues must be renewed daily

posted by gp_editor

To attain the promises of God, we need above all continuous exercise in the virtues; for however firm one’s commitment to some good may be, if it is not renewed daily, it quickly dies out.

Thank you Rigoberta.

Does anyone at “God’s Politics” want to say a prayer for the victims of 9/11 and conversion of our enemies into friends on the anniversary of the attack?
I will.

Rigoberta Menchu is a questionable choice for words of wisdom. Not only has Menchu distanced herself from “I, Rigoberta . . .” but as the New York Times and other publications reported in 1998, her “story” is full of fabrications and false claims that have been demonstrated as untrue by an anthropologist, David Stoll, who conducted interviews and detailed research into the claims of Menchu.

Verse of the Day: 'peace to the far and the near'
I have seen their ways, but I will heal them; I will lead them and repay them with comfort, creating for their mourners the fruit of the lips.
