On this week's Faith & Reason, John-Henry and Liz discuss the Pope's secret meeting with cardinals, Theodore McCarrick's proteges taking part in the Synod on Synodality, Shia LaBeouf's powerful interview with Bishop Barron, and why the upcoming Padre Pio film starring LaBeouf may greatly benefit the Church's Latin Mass movement.
The McCarrick scandal is an international scandal, involving a secret deal between the Vatican and America’s foremost adversary, China, which may include something very much like a gag order against public criticism of its abuses by American clergy.
St. John has always been my model for what Church leaders should look like. Whatever their personal weaknesses, they must not flee the cross. But one thing Bishop Barron isn’t, is a reflection of John as apostle.
