More on the Vatican’s “Synod on Synodality” that we blogged about yesterday. . . .Conservative Catholics have always shown, as part of their hallmark, an extremely high view of the papacy and of the pope’s authority. Now that a liberal Catholic is pope, that puts them in a quandary.
I have wondered how they are dealing with that. If they believe that the pope is the supreme authority through whom God reveals His will, shouldn’t conservative Catholics jettison their conservatism and agree with what the liberal pope is saying and doing? And yet, to their credit in my opinion, they aren’t.
