This was not a test. This was a real emergency.

By Antigone (articles ) | Jun 13, 2003

You are a high-ranking prelate in the United States offering your thoughts on the scandal to a reporter. You say:

"Jesus Christ never promised an easy path. What we must do now..."

The logical conclusion of your sentence (choose one):

  • a) "...is to do public penance and preach the gospel."
  • b) "...is to restore Catholic culture by 'entering the Narrow Gate'."
  • c) "...is to make sure that we enforce the terms of the charter."
  • If you are Twin Cities Minnesota Archbishop Harry J. Flynn in the interview Phil comments on below, you answered c).

    An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

      Isn't it wonderful. I believe the appropriate comment is: "They still don't get it, do they?"
