But they forget their mortality, their creatureliness. Heed well the words of a wiser head than my own:
So long as we retain the Catholic faith we have always one interest, one loyalty, one enthusiasm in the world to keep us alive ... It does commit us to a philosophy; but it does also take us out of ourselves by throwing our reliance on ... the Personality of Jesus Christ ... by identifying us with a movement, whose triumphs are our triumphs, whose anxieties are our anxieties; life can never be dull for us while the Church is still militant, still has a battle to fight and a position to be vindicated.
- Monsignor Ronald Knox
