"Preach like Paul"
Preaching well means challenging people's complacency and, like Christ, occasionally "shaking things up," Archbishop Dolan said in Rome Jan.14. That cannot happen if preachers soft-pedal the cross, he said.
"Maybe the greatest threat to the Church is not heresy, nor dissent, not secularism, not even moral relativism, but this sanitized, feel-good, boutique, therapeutic spirituality that makes no demands, calls for no sacrifice, asks for no conversion, entails no battle against sin, but only soothes and affirms," he said.
