On the Name of the Blog

I have chosen veritas et caritas as a means of putting forth the importance of both truth and love in our lives. I am a follower of Jesus Christ and I have sought a name indicative of the importance of these two virtues. One, I think, must have all of what one says seasoned with these two qualities. May this new blog exercise such seasoning in its words.
