“The one perfectly divine thing, the one glimpse of God’s paradise given on earth, is to fight a losing battle – and not lose it.” ~G.K. Chesterton (b. 1874- d. 1936)

Today is the feast of Blessed Karl of Austria, a man who lived a courageous life during very difficult times.
May Blessed Karl of Austria, pray for us!
