Quote of the Day

“One turned up the other day calling himself Boniface. Said he was a Benedictine missionary and English. Had been a man of learning, knew missionary work and a lot about structures. I think he said this all the more modestly but that was the gist of it. I’d never heard of this gentleman but he checked out pretty well in the Encyclopedia. If this one is who he says he is—and of course there is no way of knowing—would this be licit contact in your book?”

Bill Wilson; AA co-founder. In a letter to Father Ed Dowling. Describing his encounter ghostly encounter with Boniface, the 15th-century monk who Bill claims dictated to him the book Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions.
