July 25th is the holy feast day of Saint James, the Apostle, the author of the Letter of James in the NT. I find it interesting that the first day I look up which Saint is on the Liturgical Calendar, it would be James.
James has some wonderful passages about the Love of Christ, and how we as Christians should conduct ourselves.
Namely this one:
James 3:15-17 (Douay-Rheims)
“For what is your life? It is a vapour which
appeareth for a little while and afterwards shall vanish away.
But now you rejoice in your arrogancies. All such rejoicing is wicked.
To him therefore who knoweth to do good and doth it not, to him it is sin.”
Right, so… life is short, do not celebrate being proud and demeaning of others,
if you have been taught how to conduct yourself in a respectful and upright manner,
and do not, you are conducting yourself knowingly in sin.
