Do The Right Thing

Daily Draw: Minchiate ~ Faith

Have faith. Keep the faith. Faithful. Faithless. Faith was one of the three theological Virtues (along with Hope and Charity) and all seven Virtues were systematically broke into subcategories so no sin was too small to go unnoticed or unpunished. What was deemed virtuous conduct and suitable penitence were major occupations of the time.

Makes me tired just thinking about it. The holier-than-thous pointing fingers, reporting slips, sharing the 'news' with other perfect sinners; we are all the same thee and me, and it must have been a miserable time to live, and to be punished by the rules of old white men.

"No more things should be presumed to exist than are absolutely necessary." ~ William Occam 1288-1348

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
