    As the Catholic Church in Germany prepares to embark on a synodal process motivated in part by a desire to stop a hemorrhage of faithful, Pope Francis has sent them a letter reminding them they don't walk alone but with the universal Church.

    In the missive he also reminds the Germans that a "structural" reform, simply changing to adapt to modern times, is not the solution.

    Does that mean they have to at least pretend to be like the rest of us or that we will be forced to be like them?

    And I'm in a less bad mood than yesterday.

    Meanwhile, the conservatives in the Catholic church were wondering when the current pope would step down like he said he would. . .
