Re: On minding our own beeswax and letting the Pope be Pope

Let's face it ... all one has to do is state that you agree with the Church's teachings on women priests and everyone would know what side of the fence you're on.... without ever having to state one's views on abortion, contraception or homosexuality.

Yes I have, Patrick, thank you, it's very good.  What I'm hoping for, is a groundswell from the laity.   Let's start with the truth and beauty of Humanae Vitae.....

There is a hierarchy of issues to indeed all mankind - and when we're in a position to offer advice it may sound 'obsessive' - for example - to warn others against voting for a pro-choice political party - and this is where I am afraid Pope Francis may have muddied the waters.

Katie, your observations are just beautiful!  I do however, feel such an ache in my heart for Benedict.   People speak of Pope John Paul II as so truly outstanding and yet, does the world realise that he achieved this greatness because he had Cardinal Ratzinger in the background - always behind him - always supporting him....

Father Forlano's explanation that "Schonborn's move was intended to keep the man connected to the Church, for there is no possibility of conversion without an encounter with Christ" presupposes that this action by the Cardinal was somehow the one and only course of action for the salvation of Mr Stangl.  Like Father Forlano, we are faced with living in a culture that is contrary in many ways to our beliefs, particularly these days in areas of sexuality and the dignity of marriage.  As parents we can never deny our children the truth - and we can tell it with all the love and humility we can muster but tell it as it is always!
