canonize pope pius xii

O’Brien was talking happily about the canonization prospects of Pius XII, and Rabinowitz, as always, begged to differ.

“Haven’t you read Rolf Hochhuth’s “The Deputy”? He blurted out.

That’s as big a load of garbage as Maria Monk’s novel in the nineteenth century.” his friend reminded him.

“Pius saved no fewer than 860,000 Jews. He ghost wrote Pius XI’s “Mit Brennender Sorge”.

“Chief Rabbi Israel Zolli changed his name to Eugenio and his family converted.”

“Read Sister Margherita Marchione instead of that fanatical poison and you’ll see my point, old bean. Facts and figures are better than ideology.”

Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff~Fields both for supplying this week’s photograph and for being our weekly Friday Fictioneers fearless leader.
