Loved the way when Benedict was Pope, a difference of opinion from liberals earned the cry “dissent” from any conservatives. Now the shoe is on the other foot, conservatives absolve themselves of their own yardstick and feel free to denounce the Pope and express fear for the future of the church.
Surely if they believe “Thou art Peter . . . . . . . and the gates of the underworld shall never prevail against it,” etc they have nothing to worry about and are ranting in vain. As for us Liberals we have the doctrine of apokatastasis in our doctrinal vocabulary.
So what have we to worry about ? Everyone’s a winner !
