Anyone seriously interested in the subject will have a chance, if
they will only take it, to deepen and broaden their grasp of the
subject to a unique degree.--John Jolliffe "The Catholic Herald
'Certainly his [Dobszay's] scholarship, his candour, his ardent love of the Opus Dei, his charity and his admirable temper in the face of a reformist double standard cannot be too highly admired.'--Sanford Lakoff
