Less is more

Since Vatican II the updated Church has fallen into the unfortunate updated habit of churning out an ever-increasing flood of words and events. That rather misses the point, it always seemed to me. Didn’t people use to talk about a “small still voice” and that sort of thing in connection with religion? So it’s a good sign that the new pope, who we’re supposed to listen to and consequently shouldn’t say anything without very good reason, has broken with the practice of his immediate predecessor and is writing his own speeches.
