Dr. Julie Byrne: there is a “priority on unity” in Roman Catholicism


In the Religion News Service article “Pope Francis has conservatives talking schism. But a split is easier said than done,” Dr. Julie Byrne, Hofstra’s Monsignor Thomas J. Hartman Chair in Catholic Studies, explains that there is a “huge priority in unity” in Roman Catholicism. If conservative Catholics are wary of the direction Pope Francis is taking the Church, breaking away would be difficult, with reasons being both psychological and practical in nature.

The article appears today in a number of media outlets, including WashingtonPost.com
