He's too modest to tell any of you

But Papist has a 4.0 and one step closer to getting his MA. Congratulations, bud (everyone else: just pray he doesn't someday solve how many angels can dance on the head of a pin).

Congratulations, Papist!
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.

Thank you very much for the kind words.  :)
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Ave Papist!

Congratulations.
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

A double edged sword! ;) How wonderful! Congrats! Papist ;D

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
