Term of the Senate, [26 June] 1787

In England, at this day, if elections were open to all classes of people, the property of the landed proprietors would be insecure. An agrarian law would soon take place. If these observations be just, our government ought to secure the permanent interests of the country against innovation. Landholders ought to have a share in the government, to support these invaluable interests and to balance and check the other. They ought to be so constituted as to protect the minority of the opulent against the majority. The senate, therefore, ought to be this body; and to answer these purposes, they ought to have permanency and stability.

bonum futurum arduum possibile

St. Thomas Aquinas apparently defined Hope as “the expectation of a good future that is difficult but possible” (bonum futurum arduum possibile). There are also two sins vs. Hope:
(1) Over-anticipation of fulfillment, when you forget the “arduum” or difficulty involved and become too confident, taking success for granted; and
(2) Over-anticipation of failure, when you forget the “possibile” and sink into despair.

Difficult People

Difficult People
Who are we to judge them?
The most difficult people to deal with are often the very people who need our love and kindness the most. The angry neighbor or coworker can be turned around by being treated with respect and love, regardless of their behavior. They are the people who need our prayers. God can change any heart, turning around the lives of the very worst people because of our prayers. Who are we to judge them? If God has placed them in our lives we must look for the reason. Perhaps they are there because we need to learn the lesson of forgiveness and charity. Do we deserve God's love more than they?
With love in Christ,
Abbot Tryphon
