Reflection Document for the Clergy on Marriage and Family

In many places clergy are being asked to comment on the snappily titled "Reflection Document for the Clergy on Marriage and Family", relating to last year's Synod on the Family. A cursory reading might incline you to think that the tone is perhaps a tad on the patronising side, possibly a little fudged in presenting the issues and certainly unrealistic in what it hopes for from the possibilities of meeting people where they are and then trying to get them to move on to a deeper living of the Christian vocation.  However, if you want an analysis of the document that pulls no punches, go over to Fr Gary Dickson's blog at Catholic Collar and Tie.

You can read the full document on the Catholic Herald site.
