God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Rules - 2:10-12

10.  Make a habit of not replying to the words of others or to pass judgment unless you have first listened & understood well what they are saying to you.


11.  You cannot have disputes & strife with your fellow humans & still stand in peace with God.  If you love God, you will also love you neighbor according to God's will, who has commanded it.


12.  Patiently bear your cross & do not complain to anyone.  For your enemies may rejoice & other people will only think less of you if you complain.
