Francis knows the Church is in a rut. But does he know why? | Catholic Culture

I haven’t written much about Pope Francis’ bizarre pontificate for a long time, but I am moved to do so now by the decision to focus the next General Synod of the Church on synodality (see Synodality and the evasion of responsibility). In this, clearly, Pope Francis hopes for a vibrant response which will pry the Church out of what we might call the “same old rut” (however defined) so that it becomes more actively evangelical (however defined). There is much confusion about the problem the Church finds herself in today, but there is no question that she has a problem.
