A philanthropist may be said to love anthropoids. But as Saint Francis did not love humanity but men, so he did not love Christianity but Christ. Say, if you think so, that he was a lunatic loving an imaginary person, but an imaginary person, not an imaginary idea.

─G.K. Chesterton in his majestic biography, Saint Francis of Assisi.

We live in a fearful and cowardly time. The crisis we face is not a crisis of clarity but a crisis of courage.
