Stepping down the document: Fiducia Supplicans - ITREALMS

Commentary@ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The internet has been awash with sensational journalists writing high and low about the new documents released in Rome. Indeed, I felt the gravity of the problem yesterday evening when, within an hour, I got four calls from priest friends and religious asking if I have seen the new document and what sense do I make of it. I was lucky to have glanced through it before their calls came, so I responded to them and, like the document, advised them to bypass journalists and go read the document itself. Now, in catechism format, I attempt to simplify the document.
