If you’re following the Church Crisis, I offer you Msgr. Charles Pope’s Reflections on Archbishop Vigano’s Courageous Third Letter, which first appeared in the National Catholic Register yesterday. (Click HERE for it.)
Msgr. Pope begins his article with the following:
As I finished reading Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò’s third letter, I had an immediate sense that I had just read something that is destined to be one of the great pastoral and literary moments of the Church’s history. There was an air of greatness about it that I cannot fully describe. I was stunned at its soteriological quality — at its stirring and yet stark reminder of our own judgment day.
Finally, I want to encourage you to familiarize yourself with this terrible crisis because whether you realize it or not, it effects you and your family. Homosexuality is the defining issue of the day. And are you comfortable naming it?
