QuotationFr. Raymond lent me [Giovanni] Papini's new book, The Letters of Pope Celestine VI [New York, 1948], and although it is a bit scatterbrained in parts and a little out of line here and there, it is full of things that need to be said, which it says, things that comfort and encourage me and make me glad and help me. So far the strongest parts I have read are those about priests, monks and theologians.
