  • An interesting link to a quiz a friend of mine sent to me:

    http://www.syracuse.com/opinion/index.ssf/2013/12/is_pope_francis_a_marxist.html

    I find it interesting because my friend is a rabid anti-sedevacantist.  I got 9 of 11 quotations correct.

  • I got 7 right, and I have never read any Karl Marx. With a few tweaks of the contemporary idioms, his and Francis' quotes could be almost identical.
    "We must dig deeply in Christ. He is like a rich mine with many pockets containing treasures: however deep we dig we will never find their end or their limit. Indeed, in every pocket new seams of fresh riches are discovered on all sides." St. John of the Cross

    If you've read one Marxist, you've read 'em all.
    "Kindness is for fools! They [modernists] want to be treated with oil, soap, and caresses, but they ought to be beaten with fists. In a duel, you don't count or measure the blows, you strike as you can. War is not made with charity. It is a struggle, a duel." -- Pope St. Pius X
