Welcome to Costco, the Pope Loves You

Written by

Bishop of Rome Francis likes to talk about love--how much he loves everyone, how little the Catholics of the past loved anyone, and how emphasis on rules constitutes a failure to feel the love.

In his homily on Sept. 9, 2014, for example, he spoke about love in these terms: “Love does not consider whether someone has an ugly face or a beautiful face: it loves! And Jesus does the same: He loves and chooses with love. He chooses all. Christ chooses all, regardless of how we look or our status in life and a key characteristic of everyone called by him is that they are sinners. Jesus has chosen sinners. He chooses sinners.”

Mark Shea on the Synod: 'All is well'

Written by
This just in from Mark Shea:

"NPR is calling it a “seismic change”.  Hysterical Reactionaries like Christopher Ferrara in my email box are calling it a “catastrophe” while declaring that the Pope worships an “invented deity”.  (Remind me again: the difference between Reactionary Catholics and Fundamentalist Protestants is what now?)  And the Catholics in the middle are just trying to figure out what’s going on?  So what’s all the hysteria about? Well, to put it simply, it’s  a sort of whirlwind of media theological illiteracy and Reactionary panic, all generated by the completely non-volatile mixture of Catholicism, politics and sex being tackled by #Synod14.  Easy peasy!" (M. Shea, Patheos.com, 10/13/14)

Thanks, Mark.  Call us when the shuttle lands.
