“Strong and orthodox faith is never afraid of discussion”

Reflecting on the Church’s recent synod experience, Dublin’s Archbishop Diarmuid Martin offers wisdom and common sense in an interview reported in a new article from the Catholic Herald:

Archbishop Martin said he believed that “a longing for certainties may spring from personal uncertainty rather than strong faith.”

“A strong — and indeed orthodox faith — is never afraid of discussion,” he said….

Archbishop Martin also said that “a church which becomes a comfort zone for the like-minded ceases to be truly the Church of Jesus Christ.”

Plenty of other good stuff in the full article, which is here.
