An example of priests texting each other the truth of the matter. Seminarians might not know what they are talking about. But there’s always a bit of truth in humor. For that matter seminarians might be absolutely correct and respectful and do what they do because of their love of the Lord Jesus and their desire to save souls. Good for them.
For my part, as a priest, and with lots of the most academic of degrees, I still don’t mind telling priests or bishops that they are technically heretics if that’s the truth of the matter.
Maybe I’ll try that later today, a repeat of what previously had me quite literally thrown into a dumpster some years ago, you know, extrajudicially, pro bono ecclesiae, but not really, as I was put down for the sake of the code of silence, of omertà, the old kill the messenger thing. It was someone with influence in Rome who had done this.
It’s not a matter of fake news just because a critique is made. To bring someone to the truth is a matter if charity.
