One Tenth Of His Faith
I saw just another documentary about a man I deeply admire.
A strong character, not given to sophisms and shades of gray. Extremely determined and with a very strong sense of duty. A military genius. A devout and loving husband. A man able to command extremedevotion and unquestioning obedience from his men. Most of all, a man of very strong faith, a faith he carried with himself not only in battle, but in every little aspect of his life.
His name was Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson.
“Stonewall” Jackson was a Protestant.
I do not ask, today, for people among our Catholic leaders with one tenth of his discipline, courage, determination and sense of duty.
But I wonder how many of our bishops have one tenth of his faith.
