Quote of the Day

(a special pre-election quote)

When statesmen forsake their own private conscience for the sake of their public duties, they lead their country by a short route to chaos.

--Sir Thomas More in Robert Bolt's A Man For All Seasons

St. Thomas More is the patron of Statesmen, Politicians, and Lawyers--and with good reason. The Diocese of Arlington has posted a beautiful litany of St. Thomas More, and I'd encourage everyone to pray it as they make decisions about tomorrow's election.
