‘That’s why I don’t go to church!’

Poor human nature! It is a sad fact that religious people are often very unamiable, even to each other: even in connection with church work!

A little girl prayed: ‘Please, God, make all the bad people good and all the good people nice.’

And some poet sang:

‘Living with the saints above,
All is peace and glory.
Living with the saints below,
That’s another story.’

Let’s avoid that pitfall anyhow. Good Catholics ought to be a recommendation for their religion by their inward joy and outward kindness.

– Rev. F.H. Drinkwater, Catechism Stories Part III: The Commandments (1939)
