Dr. Regis Martin, professor of Theology at Franciscan University and author for Crisis Magazine, writes on weddings:
There are two things that I never fail to tell my students on the first day of class. One is that it won’t be long and the other is that they needn’t come back. I’m always suspicious, I explain, of professors who announce everything they know on the first day. Maybe they don’t know very much. And then, quoting that lethal line so blithely delivered by Henry Tudor to each of his half-dozen wives, I assure them that I won’t keep them long.
