    this was a great interview. However, why does Father say that if the lay faithful are morally bad, that their priest will be bad also? I thought that it was commonly held (and I think The Cure of Ars says this) that the causality ran in the opposite direction: if the priests are bad, the people will consequently be even worse? In other words, it seems the greater fault would rest with priests rather than laymen.
