THE SILENT SCHISM

Authors: Brother Louis DeThomasis, FSC, Sister Cynthia A. Nienhaus, CSA

Pope Francis has called upon Catholics to use what he calls “the grammar of simplicity” when talking with one another. In this work, the authors use the grammar of simplicity to describe the current schism happening in the Catholic Church worldwide and offer solutions for how to heal it.

They demonstrate that Jesus was always less worried about doctrine, dogmas, and dictums and more interested in the radical law of love.
