  1. What the Archbishop actually said was, ” The Holy Father’s commitment to the integrity of marriage and the family is very obvious. I saw it up close last year at the World Meeting of Families. Strengthening marriage and families is the whole purpose of Amoris Laetitia. If the document has elements that some serious Catholic scholars see as ambiguous, then the issues they raise need to be dealt with honestly and directly. The differences and discussions bishops are now having over the reception of the document are probably necessary to its proper incorporation into the life of the Church.

    Our own diocesan guidelines for Amoris Laetitia, issued back in July, came from a very thorough consultation. They’ve been well received. Other local bishops have taken similar steps, and I hope more do the same. It’s the local bishop’s responsibility to govern and teach.”

    That’s about the same caliber of non-statement that he gave regarding the election. Let’s be clear. If +Chaput supports the 4 cardinals, he’d say so. If he thinks there are problems with AL, he wouldn’t praise it and look forward to it’s “incorporation.” He already got whacked by Farrell, so his approach isn’t very low-key. Lukewarm isn’t what we need right now.
