Nope. He can’t. He won’t. He doesn’t need to. All he needs to do is gut praxis, and the rest follows.

This afternoon, a reader sent me a collage of the headlines from various outlets online. If this doesn’t paint the picture of how Amoris Laetitia — which few of the lay faithful will ever actually read — will be received, and how it will impact behavior, I don’t know what does (click to enlarge):
