This is an NPR audio file broadcast (On Point) on the retirement of Benedict XVI and the future of the Catholic Church, including remarks by senior editor Robert P. George. (You will note some tone-deaf coverage here, such as comment on the audio clip of the Pope singing “a hymn,” which is actually the Lord’s Prayer.) Start around 12:00 for the George comments through to the end. Thomas Groome is also a guest in the studio, and his comments are typically liberal….”Good faithful Catholics” keep disagreeing with the Catholic Church. “Dissident” has changed to “faithful”? Listening at times is like watching a tennis match, but also like watching one person playing chess while the other plays poker. And did I hear Groome call the Holy Spirit “she”… (ca. 41-42 minutes)…twice ? Is that what he means by the spirit of Vatican II?
