Page 147 - This response of children seems to conflict with the old saying that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.
Page 126 - Christians are to be taught that the pope does not intend the buying of pardons to be compared in any way to works of mercy. 43. Christians are to be taught...
Page 126 - Any true Christian, whether living or dead, participates in all the blessings of Christ and the church; and this is granted him by God, even without indulgence letters.
Page 129 - To think the papal pardons so great that they could absolve a man even if he had committed an impossible sin and violated the Mother of God — this is madness. 76.
