Quote Me S1: E6, Mary Harrell; “Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable.”

October 15, 2019

This week’s guest is the delightful Mary Harrell, Catholic radio producer and co-host of the radio show Coffee & Donuts with John & Mary, heard on Mater Dei Radio out of Portland, Oregon and 20+ markets throughout the country.

She brings our first G.K. Chesterton quote to the show (and we hope it won’t be the last!). Mary came across these lines while interviewing Dale Ahlquist for his latest book on G.K. Chesteron, Knight of the Holy Ghost.

Published on October 23, 1909 in the Illustrated London News were these words: 

“Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable.”

Much of the conversation dealt with Confession, so we’re including links to a couple of examinations of conscience to prepare to receive the sacrament.
