Message of the Saints #3

This one comes from Jeanne d'Arc, "The Messenger."

The message is for journalists, keepers of ancient/traditional stories, modern griots and troubadours.

"Your job is to carry the sword of truth, serve the truth and not a patron (if the patron does not live in integrity). You were brought to this planet to dig for, reveal and spread the truth. Seek only the Truth and it will set you and others free. If you achieve anything short of this mission, you failed at your job. Please take these words and this mission to heart. The planet needs you to succeed at this quest."

These messages come to me in the middle of the night. And I am told to share them with as many people as possible. Journalists and the journalistic profession are currently experiencing a bashing from corrupt forces. Thousands of newspaper journalists in particular have or are about to lose their jobs. There are plenty of tempting offers online, but discern and uphold what was once a noble profession. Remember the lineage of this profession. You carry the sword of truth and not the beggar's hat. Do not work for small change, do not give into corruption, no matter how desperate you feel and join with others of your profession, in fighting the good fight. Protect the lineage of journalism.
