Chapter One is merely an introduction, and merely a rough draft. If you have any critiques, please do, offer them. I’m listening.
Chapter two will be a commentary on the Gospel of Matthew and Chapter three on that of Mark. Chapter four, well, that will bring out some implications, and that, my friends, will be a bit of a fright for some who are “rigid.” That’s it. Just a short pamphlet.
About Pietro del Po’s etching @1650 above. I’d like to see something out in the country, with all the Apostles cowering behind Jesus, with the woman smiling as she points to the little doggie, with Jesus laughing with her as He points to the Apostles behind him. Heh heh heh. Any artists in the house?
In the PDF linked to here, a revised cover is to be seen. I’m not sure if I would like to keep that artwork or something of a revision of Pietro’s work above. I’d like to see the woman depicted as someone who is obviously very poor and is obviously just a teenager.
You’ll see from this first chapter that a big deal is made of listening. I’m also trying to make sense of the Synods on the Family and Pope Francis’ plea for a Synodal Church. Tell me if on on track, if I’m a heretic, if that is more or perhaps less than what Pope Francis wants. Don’t be shy.
