I've found that profound quote to be spot on.Although, for those of us who do believe, there is ample evidence of Christ, crucified and risen:"In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach, until the day when he was taken up, after he had given commands through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen. He presented himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God." Dr. Luke
Wasn't it C.S. Lewis who penned that when a Believer dies he breathes out, "Thy will be done" and when a non-believer dies, God breathes out "thy will be done"?Either way, someone's will will be done!
Amusingly, it wasn't Stuart Chase who came up with the quotation, though it's misattributed to him in various places online. It was first said by Fr John LaFarge SJ with regard to the Blessed Virgin Mary's appearance at Lourdes. It's for this reason that the quotation features at the beginning of the splendid film on the events at Lourdes, The Song of Bernadette.Nice to see a Jesuit quotation on a Marian theme given such prominence!
Even a broken clock is right twice a day!
