Religious, not spiritual

One of the Hapsburg royalty recently died, Prince Otto. After days of death ceremonies, his coffin comes to the Capuchin Church in Vienna and a spokesman raps on the door and asks entry. The friars inside ask who it is. The spokesman reads a long list of honors and titles. The friars answer, "We do not know him." Again the spokesman reads more accomplishments and again the friars answer, "We do not know him." Finally, the spokesman says, "It is Otto, a sinful mortal man." The friars say, "Him we know," and open the door.
