The second reading at today's mass, taken from 2 Timothy, includes the following exhortation -- one that is likely helpful for all lawyers, and particular for law professors:
"Avoid foolish and ignorant debates, for you know that they breed quarrels. A slave of the Lord should not quarrel, but should be gentle with everyone, able to teach, tolerant, correcting opponents with kindness. It may be that God will grant them repentance that leads to knowledge of the truth, and that they may return to their senses . . . ."
I like to think that, at Mirror of Justice, we've done a good job of "modelling" efforts to heed this counsel.
