"Wouldn't it be ironic if..."

Irony is God's favorite law of thermodynamics, Lance :) I'd be perfectly happy if he went through the entirety of Matthew 6, it's my favorite chapter of the Gospels, the more so because it tends to get passed over because the Beatitudes are right next door in Matthew 5. But 6 is where it's at: don't be holier than thou, don't be a rich hypocrite, and don't sweat the small stuff. Perhaps the absolute least-favorite bits of text on the part of biblical literalists. I remember once, several lifetimes ago, in an adjunct gig at a conservative Lutheran college (they paid well for what they were getting), dryly reminding a group of ostentatious Young Lifers about the injunction about making great shows of praying in public.

And this, as we have all observed more than once, what they get for bumping up a Jesuit. Somewhere all the former generals of the Order are smiling. Widely.
