Archbishop Gänswein: loneliness and solace

Archbishop Georg Gänswein, former head of the papal household under Benedict XVI, sent back to Germany with no job assigned to him, spoke publicly for the first time on the Solemnity of the Assumption. “We can only be grateful to mother Church that she has refrained from taming or dumbing down the faith, preferring to expose herself to ridicule and incomprehension rather than end up as a slick and indifferent thing that no one will disagree with but that no one will celebrate anymore.”
