Rev Dr Gareth Leyshon, PhD, MInstP, MA (Oxon), BTh, Director of Ongoing Formation of the Archdiocese of Cardiff introduces his blog 'Catholic Preacher', in response to:
ICN 3 November 2017 - Viewpoint: Dear Pope Francis, Thanks, and No One Is Confused www.indcatholicnews.com/news/33738
saying: "I'd like to provide an alternative viewpoint to Deacon Ditewig, and it's not one from the traditional left or right."
Fr Leyshon writes:
Dear Deacon Ditewig, I remain confused...
As one Catholic blogger to another, both ordained Catholic ministers with PhDs, I have to say that despite your recent post, I remain confused. I don't disagree with Pope Francis - I can't, because I don't fully grasp what he is is asking me to do. Perhaps that's because of a different kind of polarisation, which has nothing to do with traditional/liberal viewpoints in the church and everything to do with the way we think about right and wrong.
