"Some of the worst enemies of Catholicism are Catholics. It is safe to say that if all Catholics were half what they should be the world would with difficulty hold out against conversion. But some Catholics repel people from the Faith. Catholics in name, but not in reality, give Catholicism a bad character. Instead of representing their religion, they misrepresent it. The lives of some Catholics make a caricature of the religion they profess. They do harm to the most sacred cause on earth."
-Martin Scott, S.J.
