My full commentary on the Manifesto and my guess as to what teaching is forthcoming from Pope Francis will be in the next Newsletter, out soon! The newsletter is only for supporters.
Topics for February Newsletter:
1. Boys Will Be Girls: On Gender Ideology and Culture
2. The Council of Trent corrected Saint Thomas on Transubstantiation
3. Is ISIS near defeat in Syria?
4. On The Accusation of No Supernatural Faith
5. Commentary on Cardinal Mueller’s Manifesto: What does the Cardinal Know?!!
If Pope Francis releases a controversial document(s) before then, I will do a second Newsletter in February specializing on that topic!
