Off the Shelf with Pete Socks - Episode 63 with Philip Lawler

March 9, 2018

On this episode of Off the Shelf, Phil Lawler and I dive into his book Lost Shepherd: How Pope Francis is Misleading His Flock. The book has been receiving considerable press lately mostly because of its subject, the pontificate of Pope Francis. In this genuinely, well thought out book Phil explains why he, like many others, have had concern over what has transpired in the five years since the election of Pope Francis. We take a look at some of the mixed signals and confusion that has arisen from the Pope's various interviews, homilies, and writings as well as what the future may hold under this one-of-a-kind pontificate and it's departure from what the Catholic faithful have become used to in the previous 30 years.
