Blessed are the peacemakers.
Thank You Mark. How kind of you to do this. God Bless.
The sad thing about all this foolishness is that many Trads and Trad sympathisers, loyal as ever to Peter, are going to be shot at from two different directions because of this. On the one hand some of their fellow supporters of the Pope who are not trads will label them falsely as having this neopelagian attitude (when they don’t and therefore Francis wasn’t talking about them); on the other hand some of their fellow Trads are going to label them falsely as closet liberals, which is again false.
On the other hand, most of the Trads I know are too busy evangelising in the context of their daily lives to pay attention to this idiocy, thankfully. Which is what the Holy Father wants them to do, I guess.
