“The Church is not a leaven in an Evil world.  She can do nothing with the bad-will directly.  The material in which she works (literally) is ‘culture.’”  (1963)


Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York, view of the apse under construction, c. 1908. Pencil and chalk on paper.
Schmitt passed by this view on his way from his apartment at 400 Manhattan Avenue to the 110th street subway.
