I have not forgotten you.

Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.
—Psalm 99:8

Forgive us, even if you punish us.

“The saints are the true theologians.”
—Christoph Cardinal Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna

“Speaking only for himself on an issue that has created much controversy over the last 30 years, Cardinal Schönborn said he believes the tabernacle—‘this marvelous place where Jesus is present’—should be placed ‘in the center of the church. I come from a country where baroque is very widespread. A baroque church is entirely oriented to the altar and the tabernacle, and the reality of his presence on the altar and in the tabernacle is inseparable.’” Peter Finney Jr., “Eucharist ‘deepest mystery of our faith’”.
