I am a Jewish convert to Catholicism, blogging on a variety of subjects.
The motto for this blog is:
"Rejoice always, pray constantly,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition.
Every day, thousands of cops and firefighters perform an act of heroism. This action will not be mentioned in the news media, because it is not dramatic. It is, rather, a simple, routine act. And what is this act of heroism? It is nothing more... or less... than starting another day on the job.
