Saint Crispin

This day is call’d the feast of Crispian. He that outlives this day, and comes safe home, will stand a tip-toe when this day is named, and rouse him at the name of Crispian. Here’s another YouTube to share with young people

This famous motivational speech from act IV scene iii Shakespeare’s Henry V, delivered by the title character preceding the Battle of Agincourt.

Pope John Paul II described discipleship as a worthy adventure. It seems to me that any worthy adventure is something worth getting rather poetic over.

In Matthew 5, Jesus describes those who followed him as Blessed and the adventure is as high stakes and poetic as Shakespeare.

Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot, but he’ll remember with advantages what feats he did that day. Then shall our names, familiar in the mouths of others, be described as Blessed.  This story shall the good man teach his son; and Christ’s Christian shall ne’er go by, from this day to the ending of the world, but we in it shall be remembered.
