I have included a few quotes from Kascade Kat's diary here. The whole diary and the comments are worth the read.
"[Magis"] comes from the Jesuit motto “Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam” — For the Greater Glory of God — and it describes the criteria a person should use when discerning among different alternatives, so that their actions will be for the greater glory of God."
"To fulfill the Magis, we need both charity and the pursuit of social justice to truly love our neighbor as ourselves."
"So when Clinton talks about reaching for the Magis within her campaign, when she uses the very word that defines this progressive Catholic’s own striving to live the Gospel, it’s clear to me that she respects the role my faith has played in making me who I am, and who I want to become."
Here is the link to Kascade Kat's diary.
Kascade Kat's Diary--"The Magis - or a Lesson from Hilary Clinton in How to Talk to People of Faith Last Night"
The full video of Hillary Clinton's remarks at the Al Smith Dinner is below. I watched Hillary the other night. Perhaps it was the late hour, and I felt Hillary was good even though a few jokes fell flat. Today watching it once again, I am very impressed with Hillary Clinton and her faith.
