Do we have to listen to the Pope?
#45
My husband's response to Father Chad Rippeger's book is, 'Who has the authority to determine what tradition is? A priest or the Roman Pontiff?' He has read the book.
He's read everything everyone here has suggested, quite seriously he has. He is the intellectual one, I think more on the practical level. How can I say this is the ruler of my religion but I ignore him? 
What buddhist ignores buddha? What Muslim ignores Muhammad? What Latter Day Saint ignores Joseph Smith? If I can't make sense of this dizzying mess, how can I explain why I "obey"  (but not really) a humanist, paganistic pope to my evangelical mother?
I feel like Wesley talking to Vizzini! "Truly you have a dizzying intellect!"

I haven't read the book myself but this is a question I also have. Why should I listen to this priest? 
The bottom line is, at least I think it is-or should be: what does the Church say about obedience to the pope?
