Dear Pope Francis:
Can we talk?
Even if the door is closed?
What is our best next step?
Let me suggest we open the door and begin a dialogue?
Delighted to hear you encourage us to not hold back…be messy… to acknowledge the Spirit at work, especially in those not “part of our group” or “like us”…
At your final event in the United States, in Philadelphia, during the homily, what I heard was:
“God wants all his children to take part in the feast of the Gospel. Jesus says, “Do not hold back anything that is good, instead help it to grow!” To raise doubts about the working of the Spirit, to give the impression that it cannot take place in those who are not “part of our group”, who are not “like us”, is a dangerous temptation. Not only does it block conversion to the faith; it is a perversion of faith!”
Assuming you are open to dialogue, please have your people call my people…better yet, since I don’t have people, have your people call or email me.
