Cardinal Rahamani:
Revolution is in the air and we are not prepared for it. Our young priests are prepared. They are finding ways to live with change and make changes.



Cardinal Leone:
Yes. Sometimes they frighten me.



American Cardinal:
But why? They see injustice and want to correct it.



Cardinal Leone:
And they may make more through ignorance and inexperience.



Cardinal Rahamani:
Our friend Lakota here should be an expert on revolution.



Kiril Lakota:
[chuckles] I am no expert.



Cardinal Rahamani:
But you have lived under a revolutionary regieme.



Kiril Lakota:
Well, that is not quite right. Marxism in Russia is very conservative.


[others chuckle]



Kiril Lakota:
Their revolution is for export now.


[others laugh]



Kiril Lakota:
Our problem is to match them with our own product.



Cardinal Rahamani:
Which is?



Kiril Lakota:
No, no. Please, please. I would rather listen.



Cardinal Rahamani:
No, we would like to here you.


[others agree]



Kiril Lakota:
We should manufacture the authentic Christian revolution. Work for all, bread for all, dignity for all men.



Cardinal Leone:
But without violence.



Kiril Lakota:
Well, excuse me, but violence is a reaction against a situation that has become intolerable, isn't it?



Cardinal Leone:
Oh?



Kiril Lakota:
In the camps in Siberia we were starved and brualized. I stole. I stole some bread. I fed it crumb by crumb to a man whose jaw had been broken by a guard. I - I fought the guard to save my friend. I could have killed him. That was a terrifying experience. I, a biship, could have killed a man.



Cardinal Rinaldi:
So as a bishop you would give your approval to social disorder?



Kiril Lakota:
I might be forced to except it, as a price for social change, yes.



Cardinal Rinaldi:
You are walking a moral tightrope.



Kiril Lakota:
We all have to walk it. That is what we pay for being men.



Cardinal Rinaldi:
But what if you had killed the guard?


[everyone is listening for the response]



Kiril Lakota:
I don't know. I don't know, Eminence. I do know that we are in action in a brutal world. The children of God our are's to protect and if we have to fight. We fight.
