Hilaire Belloc

"Gentlemen, I am a Catholic. As far as possible, I go to Mass every day. This is a rosary. As far as possible, I kneel down and tell these beads evey day. If you reject me on account of my religion, I shall thank God that He has spared me the indignity of being your representative."

Robert Speaight says in his biography of the Catholic author: "Men who had not always agreed with what Belloc said admired the way that he had said it." Perhaps more importantly, "no man of our time has fought so consistently for the good things." source: Seattle Catholic
