I, given my involvement, know that people are delighted with the pope’s reassuring, all welcome, all inclusive comments, but I also know that some are confused.
Father Churchill, who has been a wonderful collaborator over the last 2 years, shared this homily with me as he was writing it. We had been discussing the pope’s words.
Folks, especially those affected, have to realize that this pope is NOT offering any changes to Church doctrine or stance. I think that this confuses people. They are building up HOPE, but the Church is still adamant.
Doesn’t make a difference to me. I do NOT want salvation. Never have sought salvation. I do NOT believe in ANYTHING after death. Kaput.
But, Father Churchill’s homily, and I urged him to put one paragraph towards the end to further clarify matters, might help you understand the distinction between inclusiveness and hoped for salvation.
