Excellent article. ;-)
Fight on, Good Pope! I had an argument with one of the priests when we RCIA’d in 2005. “Tell me about Original Sin,” I asked him, knowing full well what the answer should be, from my several decades of being a Protestant in a variety of churches. “Oh, hahah, what is that?” he said, or something to that effect. (LA Archdiocese, after all). We argued theology for a good hour, and he was really quite pleasant and agreeable. Later he referred to me, in one of his homilies, as ‘my Fundamentalist Friend.’
I am so glad to see this good Pope come out swinging on theology and liturgy. What a feisty one. We are so blessed.
