Blessed John Paul II on freedom


It is good to hear from Andrew at Unam Sanctam after a bit of a break from blogging. He came up out of the blue with this quotation from Blessed John Paul II's homily at Orioles Park in Camden Yards USA in October 1995:
Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.
That should be posted up in every sixth form philosophy classroom.
