A note from film noir….

Orson Welles as Harry Lime in the film version of Graham Greene’s The Third Man

 

Something to bear in mind during these difficult times for the Church:

At one point, [Orson] Welles – speaking as the elusive crook Harry Lime – proclaims:

“In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder, bloodshed – they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, 500 years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.”
