Does anyone else feel that the Francis debacle has gone beyond questions of Church governance and created personal distress? The Bear bets his blogging friends who monitor and chronicle the misadventures of Jorge Bergoglio are starting to feel like they're beating their heads against their keyboards.
One thing the Bear has noticed is that bloggers often seem to articulate concerns in unison. It's almost watching a school of fish, or a flock of birds, moving effortlessly and mysteriously in unison. The Bear doesn't think it can be chalked up to the echo chamber effect, either. Of course, a certain amount of this is reacting to Francis. But is there more?
Whenever members of the Bear's family call each other at the same time, we say, "communion of the saints!" Why not? Just a thought.
Anyway, the Bear would be very interested in hearing from as many people as possible. And he's also interested in hearing how people -- especially, but not limited to bloggers -- maintain their balance in the face of Francis the Pope. If anyone feels moved to increase the sample size by tootling a little traffic this way, so much the better.
