Virtue can be and has been a violent thing. There was the lawlessness of felons, but there was also the greater lawlessness of saints. St. Catherine of Sienna went hand-in-hand with a low criminal to the scaffold, and when his head was cut off she lifted his head before all the people and kissed it.” ~GKC: ‘Illustrated London News,’ 13 April 1907.

Be brutally virtuous this advent!
