In Rome, the Rev. John Wauck muses on what excellent opportunities a better writer than Dan Brown would’ve exploited:

In the nave of the Church of St. Mary Magdalen there are six statues – all women, each representing a different feminine attribute: lacrimabilis, simplex, verecunda, humilis, fidelis and … secreta. I thought to myself: how could Dan Brown have missed this one? Just imagine, a statue of a woman named “Secreta” in a church dedicated to Mary Magdalen… and the statue shows a woman standing with a key to her lips!

I can’t wait for this movie and book to be so over….
