Good Venture. My only question would be: will this be post Pope Francis or pre-pope Francis? Will it be pro-gospel of washing the feet and being the least, or would be in promotion of the hierarchy? Would it be for the the anawim or the am'hares or in support of the powers that be? If there is any institution in the catholic church that is farthest from the 'mind of Christ' that is Canon Law! My humble opinion. We could strengthen the hands of Pope Francis in so many ways. Fr. PT taught me Canon Law. He wanted us to know it so that we could help people in need. He had a pastoral heart! Our superiors have made the vow of obedience. Hence we have confidence in making our vows to them. I saw a threatening letter from one 'superior' to his confrere. Who will be helped by this Canonical Office. The underdog does not find a mention in the list of services. TD John
