Update on Ratzinger
A week ago I posted a news report from CNS regarding Ratzinger's interest in the communion debate in the U.S., which made it seem as though the CDF was to urge 'moderation.'
Yesterday LifeSite posted a somewhat divergent report, essentially calling into question the accuracy of the CNS report. The LifeSite report quotes Chaput's claim, upon his return from his ad limina visit to Rome, that Vatican officials are "positive and very supportive" of the more hard-line stance his diocese has taken on the issue.
It's hard to say who's overstating their case. Perhaps both are. Sheridan, who has taken an even more radical stance, earlier this week claimed he "had not received direct feedback" on the issue from his ad limina (though this, too, came from CNS). Time will tell.
