Episcopal naïveté

"Of all Christians and all the clergy it was the bishops who were accustomed or caused to be accustomed to living in the most protected regions of the Catholic hinterland.  Consequently for the great body of them to speak of the world was to speak from hearsay."

     Louis Bouyer, The decomposition of Catholicism, trans. Charles Underhill Quinn (Chicago:  Franciscan Herald Press, 1969 [1968]), 40.
