"We are not baptized into the hierarchy; do not receive the Cardinals sacramentally, will not spend an eternity in the beatific vision of the pope. Christ is the point. I, myself, admire the present pope, but even if I criticized him as harshly as some do, even if his successor proved to be as bad as some of those who have gone before, even if I find the Church, as I have to live with it, a pain in the neck, I should still say that nothing a pope (or a priest) could do or say would make me wish to leave the Church although I might well wish that they would leave."
- Frank Sheed
"If it don't play in the cancer ward, it ain't the Gospel."
