Quote of the Day

“You know, we like talking about the Vatican!

Today many people seek to understand and study us.... Yet many people assure you that the church thinks certain things, without ever having asked the church what she thinks.

But we realize that it is far from easy to understand what is done and what is talked about in the world of the church. Even the Pope, you know, sometimes has a hard time understanding the contemporary world.

--Pope Paul VI
