Gospel Nugget 55: Men Without Chests

The virtue of magnanimity, “greatness of soul,” is needed more than ever. In Church and society we see much pusillanimity - cowardly timidity, the vice of the hireling and not the Good Shepherd. C.S. Lewis said lack of magnanimity produces “men without chests.” Dwelling on the good, the true and the beautiful, will help us cultivate this most necessary virtue.
