I am infinitely relieved that the Church has avoided a major blunder which would have confused the faithful for decades to come.
Agreed. The faithful already know the modus operandi in such instances is to hire a speaker. The Temple Police complain. Speaker gets disinvited. People alternately crow or complain. Life goes on.
As for Rome, it makes ineffable sense that they wouldn’t stop with a speaker or two. Set up a conference on an important issue of the day, then cancel the whole darned thing.
I can attest truthfully that I have been spared any minutia of confusion on this matter. Same ol’ same ol’.
