A couple of postings for your perusal:

On the quality of mercy, in the light of the great Shakespeare.

And the young, politically active Alissa Golob’s take on her visit to President Trump’s inauguration and the March for Women.  We may not agree on all things, but different perspectives help at times.

And, speaking of different perspectives, I personally enjoyed Father Rutler’s take on, one might say gentle excoriation of, the naysayers against Donald Trump.  Politics, like much of life, is the art of the possible and the practical, while keeping our ideals in mind.

Peace, to all.
