Father Timothy Radcliffe, OP, seems like a jolly soul.

However, when he suggests that "Christians should puzzle and intrigue people", he seems almost oblivious to the current reality: too many Christians (oh, say, like those in the Vatican?), too much of the time, *flabbergast and disgust people*.

In other words, "Before Charm, Comes 'Do No Harm'".

[Re "On women priests he is less sanguine. There must be disputatio — the medieval formula for argument which advances in subtle stages towards a final convergence."
Would any priests-who-are-women (Anglican) be invited to the disputatio? Instead of tedious "subtle stages"---nothing focuses an argument like an *embodiment*! ;-/]
