One of the things I remember from my days as a theology student at Catholic University is that if the Rev. Joseph Komonchak tells me I am wrong about anything having to do with Vatican II, I can only plead guilty as charged. The same holds for Father Komonchak’s comment on my earlier post, in which I repeated the error of Mr. George Weigel in putting a phrase in the mouth of Pope Benedict XVI that he did not put there himself. In his address to the Curia, the Pope did not refer to a "hermeneutic of continuity" but to a "hermeneutic of reform" as Komonchak rightly notes. The difference is, as he suggests, an important one. I should have known better and I didn’t. My apologies to the reader and my thanks to Father Komonchak. I am delighted to be corrected by someone whom I respect so highly.
My Bad & Thanks to Father Komonchak
