about this site
Catholic Sensibility is a personal blog by a Catholic layperson with comments and occasional other writings by Catholics and non-Catholics. We make no particular claims to have the completeness of a Roman Catholic expression of Christianity. It contains opinion, interpretation, and personal musings. That’s it. Nothing official or authoritatively connected to the Magisterium.

According to Cardinal Arinze, CDWDS head: “I do not expect an aggressive correction of abuses. I don’t think the pope is going to use the ecclesiastical hammer. Pope Benedict has very clear doctrine and convictions. What many people may not … Continue reading
Plans for parish closings in the New Orleans archdiocese, as reported at CNS. Seven parishes closing for sure. Twenty-three others awaiting the return of parishioners. And a centralized elementary school plan.
