"The Pope is a prisoner of those who surround him and who undermine him....The Pope has made many efforts to change things but, none the less, I don't think he has succeeded."  Referring to the Second Vatican Council, he said:  "The current centralization of the church does not seem to pay any attention to the council decisions.  The collegiality called for at Vatican II is far from the current reality.  This week in Rome I will be calling, above all, for the central organization of the Holy See to listen more to the bishops....All of us in the front line suffer because of a faraway bureaucracy that seems ever more deaf."

--Cardinal Aloisio Lorscheider, La Croix Interview


"Even those who have renounced Christianity and attack it, in their inmost being still follow the Christian ideal, for hitherto neither their subtlety nor the ardour of their hearts has been able to create a higher ideal of humanity and of virtue than the ideal given by Christ of old.  When it has been attempted, the result has only been grotesque."

--Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov, II, 4,1.


"What I like about the Catholics is that they have this sort of mussed-up human way.  You go to the Episcopal church, and people are pretty much all alike.  You go to a Catholic church, and there are people of all different colors and ages, and babies squalling.  You're taking a stand with these people.  You're saying:  'Here I am.  One of the people who love God.'"
