There is, by the way, no such thing as an “unofficial papal spokesman.”

Either you speak for the pope, or you’re just a guy trying to put words in his mouth.

I much prefer the translation of ‘porneia’ in Mt V 32 that we hear in Mass today as “unlawful” over, say, ‘immorality’ or ‘unchastity’. That rendering gets much closer to the understanding of the verse as worked out in, and resolutely defended by, Catholic tradition on marriage.

Why did James Woods lose his twitter account while CNN contributor Reza Aslan incited violence against a minor with no repercussions at all? The tweet has stayed up, his account is active, and still being paid by CNN. twitter.com/rezaaslan/status/1 …

For nigh on 700 years, the great text of the Dominican priest Raymond of Peñafort served as the backbone of canon law. Today, his feast day, is a good day to take a look at his magnum opus. canonlaw.info/masterpageIusDec … canonlaw.info/masterpageIusDec …
