GETTING TO KNOW POPE FRANCIS THIRTY FIRST POST
Yes it is true that what the Holy Father meant is as Father Anglin explains.
But the real problem is that it should become necessary to have everyone who cares, busily forever trying to explain "what the Holy Father really said".
Most will never read the explanations, Millions will wander off into the twilight zone assuming wrong things about the utterances and hundreds, maybe thousands will just think "this is the last straw" and toss in the towel. As Saint Paul says in"1 Corinthians 14:8 (Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition)
8 And if the bugle gives an indistinct sound, who will get ready for battle?"
These are times
sent to try us.
We have been blessed with extraordinary Popes for so long we have perhaps gotten a little lazy in our thinking.
Well we are really in Ordinary Time and need to become as active as possible in defense of the Truth of the Catholic Faith and not leave it all to someone higher up.
