'Tensions in the Church'

November 21, 1986

It is unfortunate that the Vatican seems to be concentrating so much of its effort on defining proper sexual and moral conduct of individuals, while placing less emphasis on the spiritual guidance of humanity as a whole. One can try to instill spiritual inspiration by repressing one's basic animal instincts, or else by pointing to future achievements that one may judge to be of greater importance than one's individual and selfish cravings. I believe Christ opted for the latter.
