The paradox of agreement on celibacy

The new book by Cardinal Sarah with Pope Benedict XVI defends priestly celibacy, thereby agreeing with Pope Francis. Yet some consider the book an attack. Those close to the Pope seem to think that what Pope Francis says is not what Pope Francis thinks. Therefore, to agree with his public statements is to really disagree with his private thinking, therefore contradicting a “secret magisterium.”
