‘They’re doing it all wrong.’

‘You’re always the perfectionist. A couple of minor deviations from the script are of no importance to whom it matters most.’

‘It’s not just a few; I explained it all so carefully: the Bishop should be there, the Cardinal over there and the priests are meant to be in a straight line.’

‘Small unimportant details.’

‘I’m just grateful the Pope isn’t here.’

‘But God is here, Brother Angelo, and God will not be in the least concerned about a few tiny imperfections in the Mass as long as the heart is in the right place.’
