C.S. Lewis quote-of-the-week

“We cannot discover our failure to keep God’s law except by trying our very hardest (and then failing). Unless we really try, whatever we say there will always be at the back of our minds the idea that if we try harder next time, we shall succeed in being completely good. Thus, in one sense, the road back to God is a road of moral effort.”

--Mere Christianity, book 3, ch. 12

Nice quote, I look forward to reading more on your site, esp. about GK Chesterton. Hope all's well in Indianna.
