"Perhaps we must stand fast a little"

The gaze of one is blank, the other as pitiless as the sun.

In "A Man for All Seasons," Thomas More observes that in a state where vice profits more than virtue, it's necessary to "stand fast a little."   Catholics, and others who value the freedom of religion, will soon find it necessary to stand fast a great deal.  Faced with a vicious presidential administration exerting all its power in an attempt to "chain the conscience,"  we shudder to think how they calculate profit from this.  The ever astute Fr. George Rutler's thoughts here.

St. Thomas More, pray for us.
