Pope Provides Serious, Credible Guidance on Sacrament of Holy Matrimony

 Amoris Laetitia requires brides, grooms and popes to wear red clown noses.

In Amoris Laetitia, Pope Francis offers a penetrating and sober look at the serious challenges married couples face. And people in irregular unions, including those which are not yet recognized by the Church. (But may be next Thursday.)

It's like saying to your teenage son:

"Keep your room picked up, study hard and get good grades, don't drink or use drugs, and have the car back at 11 p.m. But these are ideals. No matter what, there will be no consequences, and you can count on me to look the other way in my unconditional Mercy."


  1. He also seems to make a good Catholic marriage an impossibility. Shame, shame, shame.

  2. You know, Bear, I have in my mind a reworking of the Prodigal Son. Rather than the Father waiting for the Prodigal to abandon his loose women and debauchery once having lost his means and now starving when famine struck the land, suppose the Father, wringing his hands with anxiety, set out after his son bringing money and provisions and abasing himself to beg the son to return. Naturally the son accepts then tells his Father to take a hike.


Moderation is On.
