Holy Father Patrick, thank you for your help!

(Dateline OC.net Palace): The teeming masses, huddling in the vast courtyard of the OC.net Palace, had their huddling rewarded when their ears heard the opening of the balcony door of the office/brewpub/backgammon parlor of the Forum Administrator, FrChris.

After the bagpipe fanfire subsided, the Dalek-esque voice of FrChris squealed over the cobblestones:

"For the October 2008 Post of the Month, a lively debate was held over the many nominations. It is to the glory of God that we crown Papist as the winner for the month in question because of this post:

Quote
I am ready to admitt that I may have been wrong about the essence energies distinction. I am willing to admitt that it is patristcally supported and can be an orthodox expression of the faith when properly understood.
If you notice, yesterday I started a thread asking questions about the EED. I meditated on the matter all day yesterday. I now believe that the doctrine of Divine simplicity and EED are compatible and express the same truth.
I appologize for being so vitriolic in my opposition to the dogma and beg your forgiveness in this matter. I realize that I can be exteremely intellectually prideful and often set in my ways.
I think that both the theological expression, EED and Divine simplicity have their limitations, but I think that they also provide a good balance in our understanding of God.
with a repentant heart,
Chris.

The crowd issued their full-throated response:

AXIOS! AXIOS! AXIOS!

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
