Thus Quoth – 2.26.11

02.26.2011

GK Chesterton:

The difference between Puritanism and Catholicism is not about whether some priestly word or gesture is significant and sacred.  It is about whether any word or gesture is significant and sacred.  To the Catholic every other daily act is a dramatic dedication to the service of good or evil.  To the Calvinist no act can have that sort of solemnity, because the person doing it has been dedicated from eternity, and is merely filling up his time until the crack of doom.
