Chivalrous Priorities

IN CATHOLIC TIMES MEN believed that the spirit of Christianity ought to be the spirit of government, that the defence of virtue and holiness ought to be its object, and that the law of God ought to be its rule. "If we wish to consider the end of all civil government," says Bartolommeo Arnigio, "which is no other than to live well according to the divine pleasure in order that we may put ourselves on the road which leads to God, there is no surer rule or more certain way than the religion of Jesus Christ."
