"Brothers, you came from our own people. You are killing your own brothers. Any human order to kill must be subordinate to the law of God, which says, 'Thou shalt not kill'.

"The separation of church and state can sometimes be frustrating for women and men of religious faith.

"Since Christ is the only way to the Father, in order to highlight His living and saving presence in the Church and the world, the International Eucharistic Congress will take place in Rome, on the occasion of the Great Jubilee.

Some reduce to a meaningless formula the necessity of belonging to the true Church in order to gain eternal salvation.

These and like errors, it is clear, have crept in among certain of our sons who are deceived by imprudent zeal for souls or by false science." - Pope Pius XII

"The local church is the outcrop of the church universal." - Peter Forsyth

"I felt that the Church was the Church of the poor,... but at the same time, I felt that it did not set its face against a social order which made so much charity in the present sense of the word necessary. I felt that charity was a word to choke over. Who wanted charity? And it was not just human pride but a strong sense of man's dignity and worth, and what was due to him in justice, that made me resent, rather than feel pround of so mighty a sum total of Catholic institutions." - Dorothy Day

"The church is in trouble-that's what they say anyways. The problem is most of what they call the church is not the church, and the church is not quite as in trouble as everybody thinks. As a matter of fact, the church today is absolutely beautiful-she's glorious, she's humble, she's broken, and she's confessing her sin. The problem is what everybody's calling the church today isn't the church. Basically, by and large, what's called the church today is nothing more than a bunch of unconverted church people with unconverted pastors." - Paul Washer

"The Church must send or the church will end." - Mendell Taylor

And so in this regard the Church remains holy." - Patriarch Philaret of Moscow

"On a nationwide basis, I would guess that the various churches would have to pay annually an amount at least equal to the national debt.
