Pregnant of Moral Virtue

Ex Deo Nascimur        In Christo Morimur        Per Spiritum Sanctum Reviviscimus

My soul magnifies the Lord and delights in his name

"At the still point, there the dance is."  — T. S. Eliot

"Die and Become"
The words inscribed on the Holy Grail

From Chaucer's Canterbury Tales: The Clerk

Of study he took utmost care and heed.

Not one word spoke he more than was his need;

And that was said in fullest reverence

And short and quick and full of high good sense.

Pregnant of moral virtue was his speech;

And gladly would he learn and gladly teach.
