Prayers and Praises for friend's baptism
« on: January 19, 2010, 01:58:33 AM »
A good friend of mine, Seth, is being baptized today as John for Theophany.  His patron is St. John the Forerunner, so all of this is very appropriately timed.  Anyway, remember him in your prayers today, as he has been preparing for this for several years.

Glory to God!

Glory to God.  Many years to him.

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.
