    If the Catholic Church survives this century, it will be because of priests like him.

    There have always been two Catholic churches. There is the church, and there is the hierarchy. They never agree with each other. It is a marriage of uncomfortable tolerance. When people bash the Catholic church, I hope they are referring to the hierarchy, because the people who go to mass on Sundays are way more laid back and accepting.
