Pope Francis continues to challenge the insititutional Church with his public statements. This article is lengthy (well, lengthy by internet reading standards – not by most other measures) and is well worth your time and reflection. It's a pretty intimate and revealing interview with the Pope giving a lot of information, guidance and teaching.
There is heaps to unpack in it. For some reason I can't cut and paste sections from it to this blog for you to look at. Put aside twenty minutes and read the whole thing anyway. It might be the best twenty minutes you spend this week!
Would be interested to hear what strikes you about this interview the most – what you agree/ disagree with, and what resonates the most?
On a different note, thanks to all who commented on my post last week, some of your replies were very heartfelt. I really apreciate the wisdom of those who did take the time to reply, both on the blog and those who know me by a different name in real life! There has been no miracle in the last week but there have been some interesting and positive developments. It will not be solved overnight but there is progress!
