Great commentary about Amoris laetitia from Robert Royal and Fr. Gerald Murray on EWTN.
At about 20:00 Fr. Murray has gives a fantastic response to Arroyo’s toungue-in-check challenge after reading out a portion of AL 304.
Arroyo from 304-305: “It is reductive simply to consider whether or not an individual’s actions correspond to a general law or rule, because that is not enough to discern and ensure full fidelity to God in the concrete life of a human being…. For this reason, a pastor cannot feel that it is enough simply to apply moral laws to those living in “irregular” situations, as if they were stones to throw at people’s lives. This would bespeak the closed heart of one used to hiding behind the Church’s teachings…. [THEN] Is that what you are doing Fr. Murray? Are you hiding behind the Church’s teaching?”
Tune in for Father’s brilliant response.
