Courage

 

Something for the weekend:  Heart of Courage.

 

 

We have made men proud of most vices, but not of cowardice. Whenever we have almost succeeded in doing so, the Enemy permits a war or an earthquake or some other calamity, and at once courage becomes so obviously lovely and important even in human eyes that all our work is undone, and there is still at least one vice of which they feel genuine shame.

  1. Thank you and God bless you who are veterans.

    Cowardice is found in making idols into God’s.
    In the saying, “well-behaved women seldom make history,” underscores the illness of progressive feminism because the truth is just the opposite and spirits raised to heaven walk in peace and blessings, not hatred and selfishness.

    The women of obidence is hated in this culture and it’s because of cowardice.

    To the women reflecting the obidence and trust in God as Our Lady does, well there is Courage. Yes, with a capital C.

    Thank you great women for modesty, integrity and being a role model that is worthy of the titles mother, sister and true friend.

    A courageous lot.

  2. For all his faults, Donald Trump has courage. He may lack full compliments of Justice, Prudence, and Temperance but Courage is the energy that powers all the virtues. Without Courage, the other virtues become mere sentiments and a flaccid array of good intentions such as pave the road to Hell.

    (I say this to myself as much and perhaps more than to others)
