"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Tweets from the Pontiff

It's hard for me to get over this.   On the one hand, part of me wonders whether this is dignified.   On the other hand... and I think this is the hand I prefer... what a miracle!   To live in an age where you can have what amounts to daily, personal communications with the priest who sits on the Chair of St. Peter!  Do we even know how lucky we are?
