Many people think that Catholics agree on everything or at least should. We don’t and we shouldn’t. We are supposed to agree on essential teachings of the church. Mostly we do. And that is about it. These days, most American and European Catholics are very disappointed with the professional conduct of our bishops. Many of us think women should be ordained as priests. Priests should be able to marry. Like you, I think the shroud is probably real. I am quite sure that the Our Lady of Guadalupe is a painting. I’m with Clinton. Who painted it?
