'Gotta Love Sheen

"If you would find Christ today, then find the Church that does not get along with the world. Look for the Church which is accused of being behind the times, as our Lord was accused of being ignorant and never having learned. Look for the Church which men sneer at as socially inferior, as they sneered at our Lord because he came from Nazareth. Look for the Church which is accused of having a devil, as our Lord was accused of being possessed by Beelzebub, the Prince of Devils. Look for the Church which amid the confusion of conflicting opinions, it's members love as they love Christ, and respect its voice as the very voice of the Founder, and the suspicion will grow, that if the Church is unpopular with the spirit of the world, then it is unworldly, and if it is unworldly, it is other-worldly. Since it is other-worldly, it is infinitely loved and infinitely hated as was Christ Himself."


~ The Late Archbishop Fulton Sheen
