The most vexed religious and political question of our time
So difficult is this issue for modern people – including Catholics – to deal with that it never gets talked about. So I thought we’d talk about it.
My good friend Fr. Paul McDonald, who is now involved in the Fatima Center apostolate since Fr. Gruner’s death, talks about it a good deal, but he is one of the few priests I have come across who does.
I find Americans particularly have difficulties with the concept that the more monarchically-oriented Canadians and Brits don’t, for reasons that quickly become clear once the teaching is explored.
(I’m just down on the coast for a few days, having a bit of an Easter holiday to see some friends. Home again tomorrow and we can explore this some more.)
