I don' t know about you, but I am scandal saturated at this point and would like to live in denial about what has occurred in the Church for the last 50 years. Even if this scandal was present in the pre-Vatican II Church, the post Vatican II Church which has lost its way is in no position to solve this problem in any meaningful way, meaning getting to the root of the crisis which now is a virulent form of clericalism, naming the problem clericalism, oddly enough!
Bishop Robert Barron has written a book. He knows Catholics are disgusted and many have disengaged from the Church and sacramental participation. He tells them to stay and fight.
May I suggest to the laity that the fight entails a certain demand of Pope Francis:
1. Answer the Cardinal's dubia
2. Answer the questions that Archbishop Carlo Vigano raised and meet with him in a public forum to do so!
3. Stop returning us to 1970's confusion, fragmentation and iconoclasm as it regards Catholic practices and Catholic unity and Catholic doctrinal and moral clarity
That would be a great start for the laity, Bishop Barron, wouldn't it?
