Published by Father George David Byers, named a Missionary of Mercy for the Year of Mercy, a Catholic priest administering in what is perhaps the smallest parish in North America, right in the heart of the Appalachia of Western North Carolina. Views are my own. The motive is to discern a just mercy. This is as difficult as looking on Him whom we have all pierced.

While I have been expressly invited by the Holy Father to be his guest specifically in speaking with parrhesia on any such matter of the faith and what is related to it, this does not imply in any way his agreement or support of my own opinions. Any “authority” on the part of this priest is merely proportionate to the degree with which reasoning is reflective of natural law and divine revelation. Parrhesia involves speaking the truth for the common good even at risk to oneself. Be joyful.
