how the very important truths surface through seemingly insignificant
exchange of messages.
Of course the Church is true, and perfect, and without spot or wrinkle,
-- even though, unfortunately, we do not live up to her beauty. If we

Church, from forefather Adam to December 22, 1999. As soon as we take
into account, everything makes sense.
