“If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.”
Yes, another wonderful Chesterton quote. The meaning, somewhat clearly (as is much of Chesterton’s writing) is that some things are so important, that we cannot put off doing them simply because we’re not the best person, or we don’t have enough time or ability, or all the proper preparations or prerequisites; the simple importance of the thing requires it to be done, and the simple fact of having done it is more important than whether it was done well.
So why (you might be thinking) would I use that quote to introduce this blog? Again, somewhat clearly (as is much of my writing, I hope) is that I don’t have time to do it as well as I would like, but I think the thing important enough to do anyway.
So please bear with the outward appearance, take and consider the content of the writing. The majority of the posts are most likely to be homily material (akin to the great Msgr. Pope of the Archdiocese of Washington). I simply provide it here for your spiritual reflection, and God willing, your spiritual growth.
May God bless you, and show you the great depths of His Divine Mercy.
