Mgr. Ronald Knox

Mgr. Ronald Knox was engaged in a theological discussion with scientist John Scott Haldane. ‘In a universe containing millions of planets,’ reasoned Haldane, ‘is it not inevitable that life should appear on at least one of them?’ ‘Sir,’ replied Knox, ‘if Scotland Yard found a body in your cabin trunk, would you tell them: ‘There are millions of trunks in the world; surely one of them must contain a body? I think the would still want to know who put it there’.

 

 

Dom Hubert van Zeller

Friends, suffering, marriage, environment, study and recreation are influence which shape character. The strongest influence, if you are generous enough to yield to it, is the grace of God.
