on change and stability in Rome

I suspect Ashley McGuire is going to be proved correct in her assessment that “the Catholic Church is not going to change its teaching . . . with the next pope.”

I especially appreciated this point: “Our call to live counter-culturally is as old as the church itself. We believe in a God who lived among us, died for us, and showed us the way to live lives of courage and conviction–whatever our culture. Catholics are called, yes, to engage with the society around them, but not to adapt ourselves to the popular sentiments of our time.”

    Sounds like a lead in to a promo for a deeper study of the subject of Christ and Culture. D.A. Carson revisited Niebuhr’s classic and some day if I keep on plodding I may understand it.
