The Quotable Catholic

 

"Giovanni Battista Piranesi, "Veduta dell' insigne Basilica Vaticana coll'ampio Portico, e Piazza adjacente"

 

What Catholics once were, we are. If we are wrong, then Catholics through the ages have been wrong.
We are what you once were. We believe what you once believed.
We worship as you once worshipped. If we are wrong now, you were wrong then. If you were right then, we are right now.
