I’ve got to be honest, I absolutely agonized over writing my piece, No More Platitudes: It’s Time to Take a Hard Look at the Crisis of Catholicism.
I started writing it weeks ago. Well, I should say, I wrote the first draft of a piece that never saw the light of day weeks ago. I wrote it, I shared it with a couple of people, and I buried it.
Then, about a week ago, I started again. From scratch. This time, I didn’t even share it with anyone. I got frustrated, buried it, and started giving up on trying to find the right way to express what I wanted to say.
