Spot the deliberate mistake

  • Spirituality, defined as a search for "a holy ground on which to stand" and from which "to exercise leverage on a world in need of transformation and hope", was another topic listed by the WCC general secretary as deserving collaboration.

The World Council of Churches gives the pope a few suggestions for things to do. (Bet he was grateful.) Hidden in the above passage was a cunningly disguised reversal of priorities. Just to see if Benedict would notice.
