Then slowly help rebuild

Jean-Léon_Gérôme_-_The_Christian_Martyrs'_Last_Prayer_-_Walters_37113

“I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison, and his successor will die a martyr in the public square.  His successor will then pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so often in human history.”

Cardinal George, 2010, context here.
