There is an increasing attention being given to statues in the public square. And while I think this it is good to consider who gets honored with a statue, I also wonder about our expectations for human beings on this earth. Saint Louis, whose feast we celebrate today, lived in the 13th century. He was not a perfect man, but he was pretty darn good. It causes me to think of this question: Is it easier for me to criticize someone else’s behavior than to allow Jesus to facilitate my own conversion?
