Welcome to the club …

… I Am Weak - The Catholic Thing. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

In our age, when the silence of God that gives Endo’s novel its title, is so often taken to be the silence of non-existence, the silence of nothingness, we presume as I once did that the opposite of faith is doubt. But sometimes it is mere weakness.

I have often said that I could have been a Crusader. I could fight and die for the faith. But be crucified or burned at the stake? No way.
