Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.
And what else have we forgotten? We have forgotten to masturbate, to use contraceptives, to get abortions, to celebrate gay marriages, to allow priests to love each other, and even to get married. We’ve forgotten that we can decide to die if you detest living, we’ve forgotten to have sexual relations for purposes other than procreation without feeling guilty! To divorce, to let nuns say mass, to make babies in all the ways science has discovered and will continue to discover. In short, my dear, dear children, not only have we forgotten to play, we have forgotten to be happy. And there is only one road that leads to happiness. And that road is called freedom.[Dream]
When people get caught up in divorce, they forget there are some things in life that are more important than money.

They all went white when they heard the name I’d chosen, and I reveled in their fear. They were beginning to realize who I am, because that is the enormous error they committed, they chose a pope they didn’t know. And today they began to understand. That is their tremendous sin, they chose a Pope they presumed they knew. I spoke my new name, Pius XIII, and they forgot to thank God because they thought that God had failed to illumine them. I forgot to thank God, because I didn’t think God had illumined them either. I love myself more than my neighbor, more than God, I believe only in myself, I am the lord omnipotent, Lenny, you have illumined yourself!
