Tolkien is my favorite Catholic. Here are two of my favorite quotes by him:
I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.y
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.
The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.
Make us proud, Tim.
