An “earthquake” in the Church

The New York Times described the Relatio Post Disceptationem as an “earthquake” in the Church. It has certainly caused a great deal of debate and discussion here. We have had one afternoon of discussing it in small groups so far and now have two full days of discussion to go before reports are due in. Even though there are major questions to be debated one Vatican commentator has said: “The document clearly reflects Pope Francis’ desire to adopt a more merciful pastoral approach on marriage and family issues.”

With all good wishes and every blessing
