"Belloc rose to his feet in a packed hall at his first meeting of the campaign. "Gentlemen," he began, "I am a Catholic. As far as possible, I go to Mass every day.

If you reject me on account of my religion, I shall thank God that He has spared me the indignity of being your representative!"
My favorite excerpt. Courage and fervancy are admirable and, unfortunately, rare qualities.
