Speaking Well of Others

It won’t happen in this political season, but it’s a nice thought regardless. Just because political operatives don’t want to abide by this rule is no excuse for the Church to ignore it. It could serve us well.

As Benjamin Franklin so beautifully put it, “I resolve to speak ill of no man whatever, not even in a matter of truth but rather by some means excuse the faults I hear charged upon others, and upon proper occasions speak all the good I know of everybody.”
