Fr. Thomas Weinandy on "Pope Francis and Schism"
#3
I hear you, Augustinian, I'm a fairly recent revert and wonder the same.

I'm becoming sympathetic with protestants and understand why many reject the Catholic Church. I don't think it's the right approach, but I understand.

I've come the conclusion that the Pope can do whatever he wants, and this one will. We can complain all we want, but there's not a thing we can do about it. The faithful can withhold money, but there are enough blind followers who will fill the coffers of the institution for years to come.

I'll pray and find a Church that follows traditional teachings, until it doesn't, and then I'll find another that does. I'll pray and follow those teachings I know to be true.

What bothers me though, is that if I don't follow the teachings of a corrupt Pope and his entourage of corrupt bishops, am I not just another protestant?
