I normally do not comment on politics and do not plan to have discussions during this political season. However, I ran across a quote that makes a great deal of sense and certainly has bearing on the spiritual life. It is from Henry Adams’ novel Democracy:
Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organization of hatreds.
Imagine what this means if one is speaking of “politics” in the Church. May God deliver us from all evil.
