- Fr. Tom Reese SJ has a post at NCR - Why Pope Francis supports limited action against Islamic State. He tries to explain why the pope is being Catholic in not being a pacifist ... the whole Augustin/Aquinas Just War thing. I know only a shred of Catholicism is pacifistic (Pax Christi), but the Catholic Just War idea doesn't seem very "Christian" to me.

- Church, Here’s Why People Are Leaving You. Part 1 and Church, Here’s Why People Are Leaving You. Part 2

- I can't help thinking the upcoming Vatican synod on the family will be pointless, given the Vatican's refusal to re-examine its teachings despite the huge chasm between those teachings and the way everyone, including Catholics, live their lives.
