"I wish I liked Catholics more."

"They seem just like other people."
"My dear Charles, that's exactly what they're not--particularly in this country, where they're so few. It's not just that they're a clique--as a matter of fact, they're at least four cliques all blackguarding each other half the time--but they've got an entirely different outlook on life; everything they think important is different from other people. They try and hide it as much as they can, but it comes out all the time. . . ."

This is one of the most beautiful and profound statements in the work. And how true it is. We catholics, stand out, willy nilly and now more than ever we must stand tall and proclaim the Truth even when it means danger in this heathen land of England.
