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.

Hey do you know those Catholic wrist bands with all those saints.  I wonder if there's one we can custom make if we send them our favorite saints' icons?
Catholic? My church bookstore has them, too ;)

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

"It is no small struggle to be freed from self-esteem. Such freedom is to be attained by the inner practice of the virtues and by more frequent prayer; and the sign that you have attained it is that you no longer harbor rancor against anybody who abuses or has abused you." -St. Maximos the Confessor, "On Love," Philokalia, Vol. 2, p. 105.

I figured he was a good looking guy and could handle it (serious). Now, if someone shopped me like that, I'd be in a suicidal ball of despair, lying on the floor and crying for it all to go away (only 1/4 serious). :angel:

Seriously, did I tell you about my run in with a groupie at Nordstrom's?

It was bizarre.

Probably the closest I have ever come to satisfying a woman. And I didn't even touch her.

I can't imagine what people who could be the body double for attractive rock stars go through.

It has to be exhausting.
