Thank you very much for bringing to light for me the quote from Luke that you mentioned in the Family Synod post.
I suffer much from anxiety brought on by my past career and this passage for me personally...wow...
I can't give the proper words, other than...Thank you for being the messenger.
I hope this will continue my comment: Jesus said, or implied, that God is happier with one repentant sinner than 99 righteous, but on the other hand, no one is good (righteous?), except God. Does that mean trying to convert Bohm was worth the risk of undermining the faith of many Catholics? No matter where and how he communicated? I suppose I'm quite sure most Jesuits would say yes (policy of Acceptance?), but I presume you are Benedictine and I pray you might comment further. God bless you.
In my twi-light years, it's hard to remember if (and how) I thanked you for your recent--and very wise and patient-- comment. I very much appreciate your time and helpfulness. In explanation, and perhaps a bit of self defense, I think I identify somewhat with CS Lewis, whose faith was shaken as a youth by atheists, and who grew to sense and follow a calling to refute them. That fellow Bohm (sp?) about whom I wrote to you seems to have disappeared, although I wish he could have continued to communicate in a more appropriate format. Christianity is very complicated, isn't it? Jesus said, or implied, that God is happier with one repentant sinner than 99 righteous---cut off under 1000 character rule. Balance to follow.
