“I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.” – Thomas Jefferson
Matthias aluded to this quotation in a combox – but he got the wrong guy. It was Thomas Jefferson who said it, not Abraham Lincoln. Apparently the “country” he was speaking of was Virginia, and the injustice over which he trembled was slavery. The application to the current abortion debate is worth remembering, as is Pope Benedict’s reminder in Spe Salvi:
This innocent sufferer has attained the certitude of hope: there is a God, and God can create justice in a way that we cannot conceive, yet we can begin to grasp it through faith. Yes, there is a resurrection of the flesh. There is justice.
