on Catholic education…” I strayed from the Church, but don’t think I forgot my religious training. I just overlooked it. I prayed often and hard, but, like many irrepressible young fellows, the swift tempo of my living shoved religion in the background…[but] once religion sinks in, it stays there—deep down. The lads who get religious training, get it where it counts—in the roots. They may fail, but it never fails them. When the score is against them, or they get a bum pitch, that unfailing Something inside will be there to draw on…The more I think of it, the more important I feel it is to give kids ‘the works’ as far as religion is concerned. They’ll never want to be holy—they’ll act like tough monkeys in contrast, but somewhere inside will be a solid little chapel. It may get dusty from neglect, but the time will come when the door will be opened with much relief. But the kids can’t take, if we don’t give it to them.”

– Babe Ruth
