Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

That is sooooo cool!
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.

I've never had the honor of actually  being there, but this made me feel like I was right there.

The Franciscan monastery in DC has a replica of the pediment and the tomb in their church.  It's nice to see that theirs looks pretty accurate (from what I remember...it's been a few years since I've been) based on this wonderful 360 view.

Christos Voskres!

I've had the honor, but this is in one way better: the lighting in these are far better than when you are there.  I can actually see where I've been.

When our parish school had the senior trip to DC, I rather enjoyed visiting that Franciscan monastery.
