Great Post on Amoris Laetitita Quoting a Dissenter who Pegs It!

St. Ann teaching Mary
But, as the author says, the dissenter rejoices, he himself is in mourning. Me too and other faithful Catholics I know. So much of the apostolic exhortation is beautiful, but like a beautiful dinner that's been poisoned, it will sicken the flock, not nourish it.

I completely agree with James Carroll, the dissenter, that the pope has just brought the practice of pastoral dissent out of the shadows. Those of us who survived the sixties all knew about the dissent to Humanae Vitae: in the confessional, through the conspiracy of silence in the pulpit, through the failure to teach.

For those of us who lived those days it's deja vu. Read the article. It puts things in sad perspective. Keep the faith no matter what those around you are doing. Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, pray for us.
