You've written so many good things before this. I finally got around to reading your book Pope Francis Explained recently, and, I'm sorry, but I guess I was expecting something different. I don't question for a moment your goodwill towards the Holy Father, your fidelity to the Magisterium, or your zeal for Holy Mother Church. But I'm disappointed for at least two reasons. Not bad, really, just two. First, although your book purports ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2014/08/a-brotherly-dissent-open-letter-to-dave.html

From San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone's address at ... THE IMPRACTICAL CATHOLIC - June 20, 2014 ... great public good that marriage is oriented towards and protects.
