I once said 'Show me what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman'. Boom.
In 'Rerum Novarum' I explained the difference between 'work' and 'toil': work is good for you and toil is a punishment from God. Work often has 'toil' in it.
Dominicans and Franciscans disagreed for a long time about the Immaculate Conception. 'Franciscans are right.' I said. 'But...' said the Dominicans. 'Infallible.' I said.
I was the first Catholic theologian to identify and condemn 'Indifferentism': the idea that no religion is better than any other. I said Catholicism was best.

German Power Metal supergroup 'Avantasia' said bad things about me on their album 'The Metal Opera'. I was alright, I thought.
I ordered a retrial for Joan of Arc. This time we found her 'Not Guilty'. Win.

Some fishermen were in a storm so they called on me (I'm a Saint) for help. Obligingly, I appeared and led them safely to the island where I had starved to death.
I was the first ever Pope to take a new name for myself upon becoming Pope. I was born 'Mercurius' - more of a vampire name than a Pope name.
Roskilde in Denmark was full of demons, so my skull was brought, in a box, to calm things down. It worked. My skull is now in St. Ansgar's Cathedral, Copenhagen.
I laid the foundation stone for Notre Dame Cathedral. Bloody good job too, though I say so myself.
