the church in this world is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints


does that mean we have to lower our standards re: sacerdotal and episcopal conduct?

And it'll never run out of patients because we're sick all the time.
Good thought, Alicia.

This reminds me of a protestant street preacher I used to pass occasionally. People would heckle him with "The church is full of hypocrites and sinners" and he would respond, "Yes, that's very true, and it's the best place for them!"

And thank God for it, for if it weren't, where would *I* be?
