The News: October 2005 Archives

The nuance has arrived!

| No Comments

Sandro Magister leads up to the Synod by reviewing Pope Benedict's particular emphases so far: his call for a more purified Church, as seen in the Burresi and Maciel cases; his thoughts on good and bad ecumenism; and his approach to relations with non-Christians, refraining from the dramatic gestures of his venerable predecessor; and a focus on priestly formation: Magister predicts a housecleaning of US seminary officials and a policy against candidates with "pronounced homosexual tendencies".

If that word "pronounced" is really in the text, then the nuance has arrived, and we're about to see a lot of the fuss over this document deflate.
