Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput’s writings always inspire — often, with an original twist.

His latest article includes the story of World Champion Boxer Jimmy Braddock.What intrigues me is this: Braddock was down and out for the longest time before his rise to fame. When he was back on his feet, he paid back every penny that he had received in unemployment benefits from the state.

How’s that for social justice?
