If so, what are its rights and duties?)charles stross

The secret belief that the Lord of conscience loves and accepts each Faithful sacrifice is the ultimate and sufficient support of all goodness; dispensing with the chorus of approving voices; replacing all vain self-reliance with a Divine strength; and with the peace of a reconciled nature consoling the inevitable sorrows of a devoted life.
