Teachings of the Prophets

Four Cardinal Virtues

  • "Virtue is best defined as a habit of mind in harmony with reason and the order of faith. It has four parts: wisdom, justice, courage, temperance."
  • Fortitude - Show forbearance in the face of adversity. Turn away the foul dread that fear instills.
  • Justice - Render unto each with fairness. Show moderation between selfishness and selflessness.
  • Prudence - Govern your thoughts and actions with the discipline of reason and the measure of faith.
  • Temperance - Leash your excesses, and show restraint in the face of impulse.

Eight Blessed Admonitions

  • Blessed are those poor in spirit, for Paradise is their reward.
  • Respect those who mourn, for comfort will be theirs.
  • Vindicated will be the meek, for the world is theirs to inherit.
  • Those whose hunger is for righteousness, they will know satisfaction.
  • Holy are the merciful, for the Maker loves those who show compassion.
  • Honored are the pure-hearted, for the Maker's light shines on them.
  • Noble accolade will greet the peacemakers, whose temperance gains the favor of the Maker.
  • Remembered are the persecuted, for suffering because of faith gains the Divine favor, and those who so prosecute, so shall they become the prosecuted.

Remembrances of Sacrifice

  • "And so it is, as it was, and as it shall be. Faith, regardless of creed or conviction, is a target for those who would force a worldly view upon all of mankind, sacrificing that which is holy and offers salvation and peace. Were there but one creed denying deity on this world, thanks to the hands of wayward man, it would be upon the broken bodies of ten times ten thousand who stood up for their beliefs. Future generations of the Congregations cannot live in appreciation of what they share in, without first knowing and remembering the ones who paid the greatest price to see it so. Remember, you, who comes before you, for they will show the way; remember, you, who come after, for your example in faith...shall lead them home."
