May your name be hallowed.
May your will be done
As it is in heaven.

My atheism, like that of Spinoza, is true piety towards the universe and denies only gods fashioned by men in their own image to be servants of their human interests.

We come to understand that we are in a living relationship with Christ which requires us to learn the one true rule of the Master – the law of love. We learn how to apply this law to every situation. “Love God first, then love your neighbor as yourself.”

To love truth for truth’s sake is the principal part of human perfection in this world, and the seed-plot of all other virtues.
