Judge Properly, Lest Ye Be Judged Improperly

Some years ago I heard a statement that made an impression on me:

"I wanted everyone to judge me by my intentions, but they were judging me by my actions."

In a moment of self-pity I devised my epitaph, which (of course) had to be in Latin:

Bene voluit.  He meant well.  (cue violin)

Read Msgr. Pope's recent offering on the subject of good intentions.  Then take note of your actions.
