“Who’s going to save our Church?

It’s not our bishops, it’s not our priests and it is not the religious.

It is up to you, the people.

You have the minds, the eyes and the ears to save the Church.

Your mission is to see that the priests act like priests, your bishops act like bishops, and the religious act like religious.”
