Honesty in government — and everywhere else

Don Griffith, C.S.B.

Don’s favorite quality is honesty and he begins by noting that “Honesty is a topic as ancient and as current as humanity itself.” We can see the effects of it all around us, and these effects consistently show that “honesty is a winner while dishonesty and the qualities associated with it is a loser.”

“What is honesty?” is a question that’s fully explored in this chat as Don brings out its spiritual basis. In addition to questions about corruption in their governments and dishonest business practices, Don answers more personal questions from people who have been hurt through lies told by others or by being dishonest themselves. Issues of how to renew trust and to forgive, dealing with different cultural practices, and the effectiveness of prayer for the world are all part of this discussion.
