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?

What to do with freedom

If you choose you can keep the commandments,
they will save you;

if you trust in God,
you too shall live;

he has set before you fire and water
to whichever you choose,
stretch forth your hand.

Before man are life and death, good and evil,
whichever he chooses shall be given him.

Immense is the wisdom of the Lord;
he is mighty in power, and all-seeing.

The eyes of God are on those who fear him;
he understands man’s every deed.

No one does he command to act unjustly,
to none does he give license to sin.

(today's first reading - Sirach 15:15-20)
