Holy Father Francis,
the latest book by Andrea Riccardi, founder of Sant'Egidio and a well-known voice in the progressive Catholic world is entitled “The Church burns. Crisis and future of Christianity".
We have not written any book, we have not conducted any detailed analysis, but we see every day the slow fire that devours and destroys the Catholic Church in Italy and in the world.
The resignation of Benedict XVI eight years ago left many in desolation and others in hope. For some time, there was talk of the 'Bergoglio effect', alluding to a rebirth that unfortunately never took place.
