“Man should not consider his material possession his own, but as common to all, so as to share them without hesitation when others are in need.”

- Thomas Aquinas

    Ah, a very current-affair post. Let’s hope the able Mr Ryan could also articulate to American voters how Thomas Aquinas influenced him vis-a-vis his Catholic faith. (Was he just name-dropping the famous saint?)

    With more and more people (even believers) unable to articulate their Christian faith– this is society’s missed opportunity. The Christian faith is a beautiful gift from God! Let’s hope Mr Ryan, Mr Biden, Mr Obama and Mr Romney open up to the American people about their wonderful Christian faith. I think it’s important that more and more public officials identify with their faith, above all.

    Hope you can read my post on Martin Luther http://onetenthblog.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/the-freedom-of-a-christian-man/

    Cheers
