Daily Thought For September 29, 2016

Respect

Recently, on the subway, I got up and gave my seat to a lady who was holding on to a strap. She was rather surprised and said to me, “Why did you do that?” Seeing that she was incapable of understanding a spiritual reason, I said to her, “Madame, I tell you, ever since I was a little boy, I have had an infinite respect for a woman with a strap in her hand.”

from The Wit & Wisdom of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen p. 158
