Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?
Recordare, Iesu pie, Quod sum causa tuae viae: Ne me perdas illa die...

In medio stat virtus?

In nearly all things of this world, the classic dictum applies: In medio stat virtus –virtue lies in the middle.

But not in all things and most certainly not in how we adhere to and live out our faith in Christ, as we hear quite vividly in today’s first reading (Revelation 3:1-6, 14-22):

The Amen, the faithful and true witness,
the source of God’s creation, says this:

I know your works;
I know that you are neither cold nor hot.
I wish you were either cold or hot.
So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold,
I will spit you out of my mouth.

May we be properly prudent, but never halfhearted or tepid in living out our faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
