There is something so packaged and marketed in what is available online and in print - it is so boring. Sterile. Impotent. It's about branding, I think. Or better, labeling oneself, and assuming a title, a job description-persona one feels the duty to live up to and promote - propagate. Everything one says and does emanates from that. Even those with a real vocation seemed to have turned it into a career. The soul is gone. The first fervor has grown cold.
There is nothing so boring as diocesan newspapers, or Catholic news papers, with their stable of writers... and that is what blogging and online magazine-news portals seem to have turned into.
I kind of like it that way though - less to be distracted by.
That said, I think Pope Francis may be the only voice to speak authentically at this time - which may explain why he is so opposed.
