We all know what the road to hell is paved with.  You literally couldn't pay me enough to be a bishop.  And most of them make six figures, so it's not a bad gig.  Just sayin.

It's also not as if all of the popes trads love were afraid to get their hands dirty in practical politics. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

Okay, just to clarify.  The road to hell is paved with good intentions.  It's the floor of hell that is paved with the skulls of bishops.  I apologize for not being an expert on the macadamizing materials of the netherworld.  Carry on, my wayward sons.  Tip o' the hat

Yes. Archbishop of Constantinople actually.
The same man who said "NO JEW ADORES GOD."

St. John Chrysostom.

Bishop & Doctor of The Church
