A Bit on Robert Royal's Analysis of a "Bizarre Papal Move"

Robert Royal on Pope Francis Bizarre Papal Move on Sacramental Marriage

Robert Royal, the editor of The Catholic Thing, published a scathing critique of Pope Francis' "Bizarre Papal Move" regarding sacramental marriage, particularly the circumstance around the question of receipt of communion by divorced and remarried Catholics.

It is troubling to see how there seems to have been a Kabuki show of holding two Extraordinary Synods on the Family, in which a clear majority of Bishops reaffirmed the traditional teaching, yet that formal process seems to have mooted by unclear footnotes in the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia and papal private letters.



  1. Thank you for your continued work on this blog!

    1. Thanks for the kudos. It is a community worth preserving.

  2. I think the moment has come for me to bin Pope Francis - mentally at least - as lixo. But which bin - garden waste, landfill or recycling? I suppose hope dictates recycling or perhaps I should just put him in the cupboard under the stairs until he says something sensible? No need to light a fire at the moment so that is not an option - anyway I think that decision should be left to the Almighty.
