Earthquake – what earthquake?


Calm down everybody. Even Time magazine, in a very sensible take on this “earthquake”, is telling us to calm down.

“Looking for revolution,” it tells us, “can be misleading. It can mar the actual story of what is and what is not happening. Casual Vatican observers—especially those in the United States, where conversations about sexuality have a different trajectory than in the Vatican or in many developing countries—should be careful to not read into the conversation what they want to hear. The interest in a relatio, a relatively obscure document, does however point to another shift: people actually care about what a group of bishops is doing.”
