Hopefully the purple will remind us to be kind to each other.

I love it!

It is absolutely perfect.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Very nice!

I believe in One God, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

Let us go before, O brethren,
and cleanse ourselves for the Queen of virtues;
for behold she hath come bringing to us a fortune of good deeds,
quenching the uprisings of passion
and reconciling the wicked to the Master.
Let us welcome her, therefore, shouting to Christ God,
O thou who arose from the dead, keep us uncondemned, who glorify Thee,
O Thou who alone art sinless.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
