Chesterton Quote for Today

"Men invent new ideals because they dare not attempt old ideals. They look forward with enthusiasm, because they are afraid to look back." - What's Wrong With the World


  1. What the world needs most is the "instaurare omnia in Christo": until that restoration is accomplished, those who have forgotten the lessons of history are condemned to repeat them. Our Lady will help us. Happy feast day and remember: "Ex fide fortis", Andrew!

  2. thanks kindred spirit, I forgot it was Candlemas today.
