Conscience vs. Reputation.......September 5

<
"Conscience and reputation
are two different things.
Your conscience depends on you,
whereas
your reputation depends
on your neighbor's estimation of you."

St. Augustine



[On the scroll held by Jesus:]
"Go into my vineyard."

[Below the image:]
"May the Lord Almighty direct our days and our actions in His peace."

The first quotation consists of words that everyone will recognize as coming from a parable in the Gospel.

The second quotation consists of the words of a blessing that was used at the end of a former "hour" of the Divine Office (called "Prime").

Friends,

Here is the meaning of the Latin words on this card:

[On the scroll held by Jesus:]
"Go into my vineyard."

[Below the image:]
"May the Lord Almighty direct our days and our actions in His peace."

The first quotation consists of words that everyone will recognize as coming from a parable in the Gospel.

The second quotation consists of the words of a blessing that was used at the end of a former "hour" of the Divine Office (called "Prime").
