I wrote the following passage today on my Facebook page. It seems to have struck a chord. In the spirit of Grappa Francesco, the least I can say is that it is off-the-cuff and from the heart.
By the way, Pope Francis, I don’t care what ‘kind’ of Church you do or “do not want” (EG §49). I believe in One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church; I have neither the gullibility nor the audacity to “dream” a better Church than the one Christ established–a Church, I might add, He established long before you were allowed, for mysterious reasons known only to God, to gaslight, guilt-trip, confuse, Balkanize and generally trivialize. If you want a better Church than the Catholic Church, by all means, go elsewhere to fabricate it in your own image.
