I’m not dead yet…

All right, loyal masochists, my latest essay is available at One Peter Five, titled, “‘Roma locuta est?’ – A Call to Faith in the Face of Papal Discernment“. A snippet:

“Despite the cases when he has taken a very hands-on approach to some matters…, Pope Francis prefers a widely distributed model of indirect leadership. This is a commendable display of humility, to be sure, but I think the consensus of the faithful at the present moment is that now is the time for Pope Francis, as the supreme authority in the Church, to dust off his old ‘authoritarian’ ways, and, as the supreme Judge in the Church, to demonstrate exactly who he is to judge. Lest we forget, the words ‘Roma locuta est’ comprise one of the great consolations of being Catholic.”

Also, the latest podcast (episode 8) which enrolled my dubious services is available at the 1P5 website. As Steve Skojec summarizes it:

ON TODAY’S EPISODE: The synod is closing on Sunday. Will the pope have a Humanae Vitae moment, or will he let the heretics have the microphone?

PLUS: Elliot Bougis interviews Fred Harris, a convert from Eastern Orthodoxy, about his conversion and the experiences he had with the Orthodox position on divorce and remarriage – and how he sees that playing into the work of the synod.

Hope you enjoy, or at least appreciate the regular supply of soporifics I provide in our sleep-hungry age.

Be kind, be (relatively) brief, be clear...
