Shallow question, chilling reply.

When, many years ago, an English cardinal*
was asked to 'sum up' the Church of Rome
in a single word - 'a nutshell' - he replied
at once: AUTHORITY.
He did not say Humility, he did not say Devotion,
Sacrifice, nor even Service.
He had no word of hope
for  us outside the Catholic concentration-camp.
Probably most cardinals would say the same today
alongwith the allegedly-reformist pope.

*The late Cardinal Heenan, Archbishop of Westminster.
