On Grace and Conscience

Short and sweet, I love the way Mark Shea can pack a good punch in few words in this short correspondence at Catholic Exchange. One of my very first blogs was about conscience and invincible ignorance. Mark sums it up better than anything I could come up with:
 "As C.S. Lewis observes, the trouble with trying to make yourself stupider than you really are is that you can often succeed... But our task is to keep informing our consciences, not to make ourselves stupider."
Hungry for more of Mark Shea's writings? Start here. (Warning: Mark is on hiatus, finishing up a new book. Still, the stuff he's got on that site and his blog site should be more than enough to satisfy, and he's almost done with the book, I think.)
