I really have no idea if it is truth or legend that St. Francis said, "Prach always, use words when necessary."
Chesterton's bio of St. Francis captures the zeal, joy, and wonder of this magnificent figure from the Saints of the Church whose spirit overflows even Christianity.
I think that this image is the perfect model for our time. Honestly, the orthodox positions on most of major questions of our day are far more lucid, sophisticated and deeply studied than anything from the countering side. So why is there another side? Its because of the other half of the message that sometimes does not show through as obviously.
A bit pressed for time have a terrific weekend.
