Quote of the Day

Above all, a knight needs three things:
A God to serve,
A King to obey,
and a Lady to protect from all who would harm her.
At any hour, day or night, he must be ready….”

Ignatius of Loyola
Founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits)

And while Inigo was talking about a Lady in the classical sense, there is nothing that cannot bring that “lady” into the present and call her Liberty, or America.
