Clarissa says:

[I don't see how "patience" fits in to Cayce's phrase.]

Well when Cayce said that I think he was emphasizing the importance of being patient in life. Patience is to me one of the central virtues of Christianity.

In the book 'The Essential Edgar Cayce' Mark Thurston states that:

"The hand of God is seldom rushed."

There's the 7 deadly sins but then there's also the 7 virtues.

According to WikiPedia there's several different lists of virtues including the 7 Catholic Virtues and also the 7 Heavenly Virtues. The Heavenly Virtues were proposed to directly counteract the seven deadly sins. They are:

chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness, and humility

The 7 Catholic Virtues, also called the 7 Virtues by the Church fathers, are listed in the Catholic catechism.

There's a priest here in town who is very knowledgeable about Church doctrine. He feels all Catholics should own the following books:

the bible
the catechism
the Vatican 2 documents
Saint Augustine's 'Confessions'

1 The words of the Teacher,
[a] son of David, king in Jerusalem:
2 "Meaningless! Meaningless!"
says the Teacher.
"Utterly meaningless!
Everything is meaningless."
3 What do people gain from all their labors
at which they toil under the sun?
4 Generations come and generations go,
but the earth remains forever.
5 The sun rises and the sun sets,
and hurries back to where it rises.
6 The wind blows to the south
and turns to the north;
round and round it goes,
ever returning on its course.
7 All streams flow into the sea,
yet the sea is never full.
To the place the streams come from,
there they return again.
8 All things are wearisome,
more than one can say.
The eye never has enough of seeing,
nor the ear its fill of hearing.
9 What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Is there anything of which one can say,
"Look! This is something new"?
It was here already, long ago;
it was here before our time.
11 No one remembers the former generations,
and even those yet to come
will not be remembered
by those who follow them.

John 15:14 If you love me, you will keep my commandments.

Deuteronomy 21: 18-21 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father ... all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you ....

Vicki says:
When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If anyone one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."...After this, those who heard began to go away, one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman standing there...."Then neither do I condemn you," Jesus declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin".

I wonder: were there any commas in the oldest extant manuscripts of that text?

Gen. 10:8-9
8 Cush was the father of Nimrod, who became a mighty warrior on the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; that is why it is said, "Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord."

I'm glad I found this passage as I was wondering why Nimrod was called a mighty hunter before the Lord.
