The theological/political dialogue between Catholic and Communist is delightful in its semi-conclusion (or consent agreement between the two characters) that the priest is a Catholic in spite of the Curia while the Mayor is a Communist.

The utterly innocent priest's wayward behavior en route—allowing the Mayor to try on his collar, mistakenly going to a dirty movie (even worse, chuckling at it! Wonderful soft adventure, gallons of wine, and the talk is of purple nylon socks, Marxism, Roman Catholicism and onanism.At the last he is a vindication of humanity in faith, but humanity justified, become a living thing, by the power of love, which is true faith.

Running alongside and very central throughout Monsignor Quixote are the themes of faith and belief – a faith in religious and political writings, a belief in God and political doctrine; but also here is doubt – a very human doubt in faiths and beliefs held.

For his part, the unbeliever and worldly Sancho always set off his communist ideals against the Catholic priest's belief. A pastiche of Don Quixote, with moments of comedy juxtaposed with reflection on matters such as life after a dictatorship, Communism, and the Catholic faith.Like Cervantes’s classic, this comic, picaresque fable offers enduring insights into our life and times. But Greene uses its own form of a dilemma here to exploit the meaning and purpose of faith in something "Higher" than the banality of human existence. From what I remember, from both books, I think that the effect Greene wanted to obtain with the use of two opposites, giving the replica to each other to achieve a consensus (or not. Quixote and Sancho are brought to a Trappist monastery where, sleepwalking and in delirium, Father Quixote rises from his bed at night, goes to the church, celebrates the old Tridentine Mass—all the time imagining he holds bread and wine in his hands—and then, in a last effort, administers communion to the Communist ex-mayor before sinking dead into his friend's arms.
