The Way It Is


  1. Do you know from where this sentence is taken? What work?

  2. Amen! Well said, Thomas.

  3. @HMS

    I have seen the above quote before, but do not have a reference. The closest sourced-quote I know of is this:

    “Augustine says in his Rule: ‘Show mercy not only to yourselves, but also to him who, being in the higher position among you, is therefore in greater danger.’ But fraternal correction is a work of mercy. Therefore even prelates ought to be corrected.”
    St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica II, II, q. 33, a. 4, Sed Contra.

    I hope the reference is correct, but have not checked it personally.
