..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

There is No Standing Still



In the way of virtue, there is no standing still;
anyone who does not daily advance, loses ground.
To remain at a standstill is impossible; he that
gains not, loses; he that ascends not, descends.
If one does not ascend the ladder, one must descend;
if one does not conquer, one will be conquered.

... St. Bonaventure (1221-1274)

Agreed.

Faith requires progression.

That is a very nice photo; I like the red. Wales is beautiful and my PhD defence shall be there shortly.
