Here’s Francis of Assisi’s humble proto-hippie church…

Here’s the Pope’s church…

I’m afraid the moral was lost on me.



  1. That is because it is not a “moral” but a witness of faith.

  2. “The more opulent a temple, the more miserable is the spiri that lives in it. | In Italian (my mother language): Quanto più opulento un tempio tanto più misero è lo spirito che lo abita.” ~Jean-Paul Malfatti

    • Okay, I’ll accept that as the moral, J-P: the papacy is a corrupt institution. I have to admit, however, that I no longer remember much about the film.

    • The more opulent a temple, the more miserable is the spiri that lives in it.

      Curious how ANYBODY could ever think this, esp. if they saw some of those godforsaken piss-poor Church of God things in the South and the gross cult ‘churches’, whether the New Age things or Primitive Baptist or Holiness or what. Nothing but ignorance in those places, that’s ‘miserable spirit’. I loved what Flannery O’Connor said in one of her fabulous stories, when talking about this teenager who, as described by a girl acquaintance, “he’s gonna be an Assembly of God preacher because you don’t have to know nothin’ to be one”.
