@Radulph: Good point. But existentialism loves contradictions.
POOP FRANCIS YOU ARE JUST SPINNING, AND SPINNING, AND SPINNING
AND NOBODY BUYS YOUR " HOLY CRAP" ANYWAY
Don Reto Nay

Off topic: Il Messagero reported that illegal immigrants (i.e those who entered Italy clandestinely) who live at the this centre, were excluded from this lunch with Pope Francis for security reasons.
Dr Bobus
Dogmatic formulae don't guarantee understanding of the dogma. They provide a starting point that cannot be contradicted. There can be different formulations of the same mystery unless they are so ambiguous that they permit contraditions of the dogma.

Squirming like a worm...........

Francis is a son of Karl Rahner. I would say intellectual son, but Francis is anti-intellectual.

“A faith that is reduced to formulas is a myopic faith” is one of those 1960s slogans (after all these years)
Dr Bobus
Francis' attack of ready-made formulas is itself a ready-made formula. We are seeing in Francis the product of very poor formation on a sociopath (Kolvenbach's description of Bergoglio).
