Yes, I’m watching the Olympics.   It’s important.

The Olympic spirit uplifts us all.

Three thousand years ago the Greeks had a name for this:  (using the Latin alphabet) arete –  Excellence.

Excellence is for all of us.   We can all endeavor to be the excellent person we were created to be.    We are all called to Goodness and Perfection.

The hard work of the Olympic athletes is our inspiration.    We can admire those who have shown us their examples, and thank them.
