Quote of the Day

by Vince

“Whatever I had read as a child about the saints had thrilled me. I could see the nobility of giving one’s life for the sick, the maimed, the leper. But there was another question in my mind. Why was so much done in remedying the evil instead of avoiding it in the first place? Where were the saints to try to change the social order, not just minister to the slaves, but to do away with slavery?”– Dorothy Day

This quote by Day makes me think of the excessive mentioning of the Devil, evil, and all other bad things with unfortunately less attention focused on changing the systems of our day that keep many bad things happening.
