My goodness, Pope Benedict does it yet again. He has been coming out with one strong, much needed teaching after another recently, with the most politically incorrect stance on very controversial issues.
He clearly understands that truth on these moral issues must now be boldly preached without any regard for human respect or encountering ridicule or hatred. Benedict is imitating the true Christ and showing the rest of the world’s bishops that they are now obliged to do the same.
Bravo for Pope Benedict!

And then there is the bishop of Sudbury, Ontario in Canada. It is very straightforward what Bishop Plouffe’s obligation is regarding Trudeau’s visit to a Catholic school and yet the bishop does the exact opposite. Many are confounded and scandalized.
Have a wonderful weekend preparing for the Good News of Christmas.
