  1. Second day reflection: I don’t know, Anthony, but
    isn’t Cardinal Müller dealing with —re. Cardinal
    Duka’s dubia —a “rugged individualism” . . .
    spawned by the now-perfected digital technology?

    I mean, now anyone and everyone can make
    public their OWN “take” on a given issue, whereas,
    in the days of BEFORE-INTERNET, theological &
    moral questions [ differing from Church Teaching ]
    went directly to the local Ordinary or to Rome for
    clarification and resolution.

    But now —with instant AND “fracing” communication
    [ to use a term from mining ] —who, practically, is
    there to put moral and theological differences to
    rest . . after clarifying and resolving?

    Thank God that Cardinal Müller took on Cardinal
    Duka’s “dubia”, put it through the highly fine-tuned
    vetting of Catholic Church Teaching, leaving
    Cardinal Duka with a clear option: one does
    not have to assent to teachings that go against
    the Doctrine of the Faith . . which Francis sees
    as “rigid” [ frozen dead ] yet overlays every
    perception with ambiguity, i.e. HIS “open-ended”
    opinions, except the one affirming the Amoris
    Laetitia interpretation [ by the Buenos Aires
    hierarchy ] the ONLY and correct interpretation.

  2. Thank you, Anthony !

    Take it from Prairie Grandpa Bob, who “was BORN
    to” argue, and habitually call into question, with a
    built-in bad temper, an unhappy character trait,
    Inherited from Mom during Hitler days [ 1944 ff. ]

    My Spiritual Director of 42 years ago [ 1971 ]
    nailed it with his observation, “Bob, when you’re
    happy don’t looking for reasons to be UN-

    Currently, it is our GRAND CHILDREN [ aged
    four months to seven years (the eldest preparing
    for first Confession & Holy Communion as we
    speak) ] who have been the REAL anti-dote to
    Grandpa’s habitual “head-tripping” and mistrust.

    Little kids have no “script”. On is instantly dis-
    armed by their spontaneous joyful excitement,
    their squabbling, and their tears . . a critical
    “lesson” for Grandpa [ and every aware adult ],
    who are NO different in the sight of God their Father,
    WHO ALWAYS awaits —and LOOKS FOR —the
    returns of His straying “little nose-pickers.

    So, for this aging “geezer”, praying the Rosary
