"Indeed, all that is of corruption in the people comes mainly from the clergy. The priest who sins makes the people sin; when the laity see some who indulge in excesses, they precipitate themselves at their example. Reprimanded, they say for excuse: The son can only do what he sees done to his father, and it suffices for the disciple to be like his master. Hence, from there comes the evils in the Christian people. Faith perishes, religion is disfigured, freedom confused, justice trampled underfoot; heretics abound; schismatics become insolent, treacherous cruelty; the children of Agar prevail."
- Fr. René François Rohrbacher
"The inner life of another that is known to God alone becomes to a much less degree open to us through friendship. It partially fills the desire of our incomplete, lonely hearts for completeness in another. Friendship brings out the best in a person through forgetfulness of self." - St. Thomas Aquinas
