If you’re like me, you’ve been getting lots of comments and questions from friends and acquaintances lately. They range from “what is going on in our church?” to “how can you stay in such a church?”
It is indeed a dark time, but the church has faced dark times before. And the light of Christ prevails, even in the darkness.
One of the great responses I’ve seen recently comes from English Dominican Fr. Timothy Radcliffe, former Master of the Dominicans, writing in The Tablet, London’s weekly Catholic newspaper April 12. For the complete reflection, follow the link http://www.thetablet.co.uk/article/14543
“From the beginning and throughout history, Peter has often been a wobbly rock, a source of scandal, corrupt, and yet this is the one – and his successors – whose task is to hold us together so that we may witness to Christ’s defeat on Easter Day of sin’s power to divide. And so the Church is stuck with me whatever happens” – Fr. Radcliffe.
