Catholic Quote of the Day — from C. S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis
C. S. Lewis

“It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” (C. S. Lewis)


NB: C. S. Lewis was an Anglican, many of whose insights were profoundly Catholic.
