Can you give me this Fulton J. Sheen quote?

Hi All!

What is that quote that goes something like, “Many people dislike the Catholic Church for what they think it teaches, but few dislike the Catholic Church for what it does, in fact, teach”…


Here it is:

“There are not a hundred people in America who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions of people who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church, which is of course, quite a different thing.” [Archbishop Fulton Sheen]

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
