My time in the Church’s field hospitals

Christ Crucified by Diego Velázquez, 1632 [Museo del Prado, Madrid]
Pope Francis is convinced that the world needs a soft evangelization, a ministry to people frightened of criticism and the word sin. Perhaps he is right. But while he is traveling and evangelizing, applying tourniquets and offering reassuring words, he might refrain from undermining the Church to which Christ entrusted all the truth, against a time when men are ready to receive it.
