Post Mortem on Catholic Doctrine?

"The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”

--G.K. Chesterton 

This quote, a favorite of my beloved wife, hangs on our refrigerator.  I keep thinking about it...not sure why.

The Exhortaion is not an infallible statement.

Doctine remains the same.

Popes and bishops come and go.

While folks like us babble about Michelangelo.

donalmahoney, you nailed it. Prayer aside, we might as well be babbling about Michelangelo. Or the price of Wheaties, or about -- heck, about pretty much anything. Evidently nobody this side of God is listening.

donalmahoney- The exhortation can't change doctrine, but that doesn't mean it can't do a lot of damage and cause souls to be lost. Someone with a big pulpit needs to point out the errors for the sake of the souls who might be lost, and so that Christ's Truth might be handed on to future generations.

Its errors need to be publically corrected.

Chesterton is such a postmodern punk.
