To: piusv; Linda Frances
Piusv: "Forgive me, but I'm failing to see how a Catholic can view-- 'Pope Francis is speaking in God’s language, not Catholic language'---as "good remarks".

I had in mind my appreciation that Linda Frances was writing with good will, based on her own experience, and in her own "voice" --- e.g. not cut-and-pasting off of some internet apologetic site. I always value "good remarks" whether I agree entirely or not.

The rest of my comments, in the paragraphs that followed, outlined my reasons for thinking that "God's language" and "Catholic language" are not in opposition or contrast to each other. I summed it up by saying, "My experience has been that "Church" and "Christ" fare for better or for worse, together."

In other words, "Church" and "Christ" tend to go up or go down in tandem. They don't compete: they coincide.

I hope I have not been too obscure. What say ye, Piusv? Linda Frances?

To: Mrs. Don-o

My apologies as I did not see that you did equate the two. They are, indeed, the same.

And I pray that Linda Frances considers a return to Christ’s Church.
