In this PODCAzT I read for you the open letter by Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of St Mary in Astana, Kazakhstan.
It seems that it was originally released in Italian, but it was subsequently translated into English. The English appeared on the blog of the Voice of the Family. However, everyone involved, including His Excellency Bishop Schneider, would like it to be widely diffused.
Here’s my contribution. It maybe that you won’t sit and read it – it’s longish, some 6500 words in English – but maybe you can listen to it while doing other things. That’s where I come in.
Bp. Schneider tackles some of the difficult and confusing, seemingly contrary to the Church’s teachings, in the infamous Chapter 8 of Amoris laetitia and points out the possible bad effects. Therefore, he – and I guess we – would like greater clarity about them.
Along the way you hear a cut from Robert Shaw’s O Magnum Mysterium, “If ye love me” by Thomas Tallis.
And… “Love” by Paul Simon.
