  1. Francis: it's the Devil's fault! Of course Archbishop Viganò is whining that the pope called him Satan... I'm ready for this party...
  2. I can hear the right wing noise machine firing up already over this... americamagazine.org/faith/2017/03/08/pope-francis-discusses-ordination-married-men-response-priest-shortage Yeah, I hope he pushes this through, if for no other reason than the look on Lord High Ray Burke's face when he does that. Doesn't look like the womenfolk are going to get invited in anytime soon, but hey it's a start. Hopefully in my lifetime.
  3. The Pope has spoken out again about the resistance to reform within the church; kcrg.com/content/news/Pope-denounces-resistance-to-reform-in-Christmas-greeting-407896475.html Gee, who could he be talking about? Hmmmm.....I wonder? Yeah he probably did have Lord High Ray in mind when he said what he did.
  4. Nothing surprising here to me, but anyone who thinks Francis is some kind of "progressive" needs to rethink their position: http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/11/02/world/europe/pope-francis-women-priests.html?em_pos=large&emc=edit_nn_20161102&nl=morning-briefing&nlid=57825966&_r=0&referer= As the article indicates, I think Francis is throwing a bone to disaffected conservatives by this move. It changes nothing, but makes him look like a hardcore defender of tradition in the face of "wishy washy Protestants." The reasoning Francis cites is John Paul II, but I believe the real reason that women can never be priests stems from Aquinas by way of Aristotle calling women "mutilated men" who can't become "other Christs" in the Mass, which is found in the third part of the Summa. Of course, you can't say that in the public square, so instead we.get the circular reasoning of how women were never ordained in the past and therefore can't be ordained in the future.
  5. Francis is thinking about maybe having the next Synod of Bishops focus on ministry, including the possibility of ordaining married men... cruxnow.com/analysis/2016/08/12/next-synod-likely-focus-ordaining-married-men/ I can't wait to hear what ol' Lord Ray or other conservatives reaction to this development is. Getting the ol popcorn ready now.
  6. Cool. ncronline.org/news/vatican/francis-create-commission-study-female-deacons-catholic-church#.VzR7PK-lw_U.twitter Hopefully the church will move in that direction, having female deacons as a start then keep moving towards the day when all levels of holy orders are open to women. Of course this being the Catholic Church I'm managing expectations on this.
  7. So, the Pope issued the "Amoris Laetitia," a broad statement about marriage and other forms of love in relation to the RC Church and Christianity in general. While there is no call for accepting gay marriage, or allowing remarried Catholics to take communion, there are some interesting changes in some of the messaging around patriarchy and authoritarianism in marriage. I found this passage especially interesting: Vox has a good summary.
