So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Elder Wisdom

Victoria, BC | WA March 2015

Among all the practical life lessons taught by my elders, useful lessons which are far too numerous to list in full, here are a few tidbits that might provide a little guidance or amusement and perhaps, just perhaps, help one avoid unnecessary complications.
  • Dinner with a gossipmonger will leave a bad taste in your mouth.
  • A bad mood is not a license to be rude.
  • Never tear someone down to build yourself up.
  • Never look down on anyone, especially when they look up to you.

"A multitude of wise men is the salvation of the world(.)—Wisdom 6:24. Readers are welcome to make rational and responsible comments. Any comment that 1) offends human dignity and/or 2) which constitutes an irrational attack on the Catholic Faith will not go unchallenged. If deemed completely stupid, such a comment will most assuredly not see the light of day. Them's the rules. Don't like 'em? Move on.
