Doing what is proper

What does one do about a most interesting piece of news that, nevertheless, one feels as not appropriate to reveal? This has pressed my mind for the past couple of days, regarding news which is not exactly new (describing events of decades ago), published in a foreign language, but whose general tone sounds improper or unseemly for what is, after all, not a site for Catholic gossip or disrespect (there are already "Catholic" bloggers who are experts in gossip, slime, and disrespect, and who see the Church as simply an immense succession of power plays -- enough of those).

The report is extremely important, it is remarkably credible, and it explains personal causes of many aspects of the problems Holy Mother Church still faces today.

This news will possibly be available in English in the next few days or weeks, but you will not hear it from this blog first -- this is a reminder that we knew about it first, but decided against spreading it.

I think I know what piece of news you're referring to and I have also decided that I'm not going to post it on my site. At least not unless it gets wide distribution in the English-language press, in which case I may address it for the sake of readers who want a faithful Catholic perspective on it.

Can you say if it's good news or bad news?

It's "old" news, as I made clear, so do not worry.

Henry94 said...

Bad news then.

Great site by the way.

If we're talking about the same "news" it concerns old gossip about a long deceased pope.
