Love the Church

Next to the front doors of St. Michael's Cathedral.

We must love the Church and desire her to be as Christ planned and instituted her…We shall never err by idealizing, with our love, the Church of Christ!  We should love her also for her shortcomings and her needs. Are we not ourselves, as members of this human and mystical body, involved in her present conditions? Would not the Church be more worthy and more alive if we all loved her more? We should love her today more than ever before… We should love her as Christ loved her by giving His life for her. 
                                          – Pope Paul VI
