Have you ever READ the Catechism? Any of the Encyclicals of John Paul II or Benedict XVI? Are you remotely aware of the vast network of charitable work done by Catholics? Never heard of Opus Dei? Never heard of the myriads of 20th-century martyrs whose lives and deaths witness to the beauty and grandeur and truth of the Gospel? Never heard of the armies of converts marching into the Church thanks to the work of organizations like Catholic Answers, EWTN, the Coming Home Network? Never heard of the women saved from the hell of abortion and souls and hearts healed by post-abortion counselling sponsored by the Church? Never heard of Retrouvaille?
SCENE I. The heath.
Yet better thus, and known to be contemn'd,
Than still contemn'd and flatter'd. To be worst,
The lowest and most dejected thing of fortune,
Stands still in esperance, lives not in fear:
The lamentable change is from the best;
The worst returns to laughter. Welcome, then,
Thou unsubstantial air that I embrace!
The wretch that thou hast blown unto the worst
Owes nothing to thy blasts. But who comes here?
Enter GLOUCESTER, led by an Old Man
