Piquant excerpts lifted from Touchstone editors' own reading & listening.



Pastors who lack foresight hesitate to say openly what is right because they fear losing the favor of men. As the voice of truth tells us, such leaders are not zealous pastors who protect their flocks; rather, they are like mercenaries who flee by taking refuge in silence when the wolf appears.

Pope St. Gregory the Great
(540-604)
