“Pretty amazing,” the record-setting quarterback said Friday. “Incredible. I have a tremendous amount of respect for the game. I hold these guys in the highest regard. I just find it hard to believe I am in with those guys.” useful linkThose guys are the 295 members of the hall that Favre will join, along with Tony Dungy, Marvin Harrison, Orlando Pace, Kevin Greene, Ken Stabler, Dick Stanfel and Ed DeBartolo Jr. That Favre even remotely doubted he belonged after one of the greatest careers in NFL history — 20 seasons, tons of records, including a stunning 299 consecutive games, an NFL title in 1996 — is folly to most. The first three-time league MVP (1995-1997), Favre has put up numbers that can be overwhelming. Add in his spirit, competitive fire and fun-loving attitude, and he was such a slam dunk in his first year of eligibility that his candidacy wasn’t even discussed by the selection committee in February. When he began getting text messages from his heroes, particularly Roger Staubach, Favre said he had to “pick his jaw off the floor.” “It wasn’t a goal of mine,” Favre said. “I have the utmost respect for the players who go in, but I just wanted to play, and people who saw me identified with that.

It is what we were meant to do. In Holy Scripture we read those general counsels of self-denial which all Christians are called upon to follow during their lives, while they are the object of a more complete application in a state which for that very reason may be called a state of perfection. In exceptional cases the obligation may eFist as the consequence of a vow or of a Divine order, or of the improbability which is very rare of otherwise finding salvation . Matthew, fix, xi P.G., XXXV, 634; XXXVI, 298; St. Paul, speaking of the same Christian, says “he that giveth his virgin in marriage, doth well; and he that giveth her not, doth better” 1 Corinthians 7:38 .

In the general law of doing good, and in the facilities given us to do it, we read a general, or it may be even a special, invitation of God to do it, an invitation which is pressing in proportion to the excellence of the good, but which nevertheless we are not bound to accept unless we discover some duty of justice or charity.
