A quote gleaned from our Catholic Homeschool Support Group:
In the absence of this faith now, we govern by tenderness. It is a tenderness which, long since cut off from the person of Christ, is wrapped in theory. When tenderness is detached from the source of tenderness, its logical outcome is terror. It ends in forced labor camps and in the fumes of the gas chamber.
~Flannery O’Connor~ (From “A Memoir of Mary Ann”)
