Loving Truth and Peace--15 (conclusion)

Loveripax
(LTP)
Praeclaras veritatem tantum et pacem diligite.
Zacharias 8:19, Biblia Sacra Vulgata

One way to summarize the 45 entries on LTP over the past two years is with a "new" term, an English-Latin contraction for LTP. It can be used as a salutation, blessing, and exhortation:
Love: Veritas (truth) + Pax (peace)
loveripax

And also using the direct object grammatical forms for truth and peace in Latin, as in the opening foundational quote for these entries, from Zechariah (cited at the top):
Love: veritatem and pacem.
loveripacem

So:
Pursue LTP whole-heartedly.
Practice LTP always.
Live LTP.
Be LTP.
