Christopher West is back: Admits he's unbalanced.


Well not exactly...
.
Catchy headline though, huh?  This is what Mr. West really said:


Author and speaker Christopher West has ended his six-month sabbatical, saying he has come to see “a need for greater balance in my life.” He reported that he will address critics of his interpretation of John Paul II’s theology of the body, adding that some have been helpful while others continue to “misunderstand or misrepresent” his work.
.
“I would like to offer my sincere thanks to all those who made sacrifices to afford my family and me this time, and to all who lifted me up in prayer and offered written letters of encouragement and support,” West said in a statement on his website.
.
"Among other things, I have come to see a need for greater balance in my life. All who have been impacted by my lack of balance have been beautiful witnesses to me of God's tender patience and mercy,” West continued. “I cannot thank you enough.” - CNA

You are welcome Chris! 
.
I almost feel as if he is speaking directly to me - don't you?  I've always been on his side you know. 
.
What?!

[Seriously, I'm sure he had a well earned, prayerful, reflective sabbatical, with wonderful coaching and grooming for his come back.  He will be just fine now.]

    You crack me up! This one and the previous post had me spitting tea all over my monitor screen.

    I love, love, love your humour and hope you never cease to blog. You make me laugh, think, and sometimes cringe in recognition of my own shortcomings.

    God bless you.

  5. Maybe an appearance on Oprah and then The View will help rehab his image. After all a tete a tete with sexually repressed conservative Elizabeth Hasselbeck would do wonders for publicizing his Brand, TOB (TM). Also some tips from Deepak Chopra about appealing to women to get the men more in line with the program- cuddling, kissing rather than rolling over and snoring.

    Is there something to eat in the Fridge?

    Seriously TOB, I know JPII wrote etc. etc. respect the Pope and all that. BUT does TOB stand the Vincentian test of Ubique, Omnia et Semper? Is it fanciful Post VII innovation soon to go to the dustbin of failed theories like Liberation Theology, is TOB merely Sexual Liberation Theology?

    Father Nazareth Priest any guidance?

    "Sexual Liberation Theology"! =D

    I'm not sure that beats the "Catholic Fertility Cult" label, but it's a strong contender.

    PS--My captcha is "coran"! =P And I was trying to avoid commenting on the Koran post, too. LOL!
