From the homily
Fr. Michael was the celebrant. In his homily on he brought up a classic quote dating from the 1600's- the comment of a representative of the Holy See who was sent to Port Royal, France, to try to deal with the community of nuns there, which had become a hotbed of the heresy of Jansenism. The mission did not go well, and the prelate was left to comment on these nuns, "They are as pure as angels- and as proud as demons !"
