Mein Krampf

Mein Krampf

Because Padre Pio Press is such a prestigious voice in all things, it ought not surprise our reader that from time to time, even the great shepherds of the Church (especially the German ones) seek it out for spiritual direction, solutions to theological conundrums, sage counsel of the sartorial sort, and insider tips for the racetrack.

Most recently, a team of moral theologians and canonists requested pastoral assistance with signage for their sinodal way. Till now, their marching orders consisted of stripping the path of all “one-way” indicators to be replaced with two-way signs. But this got their Lederhosen in a twist since it was deemed too restrictive after a brief springtime campaign, and “all-ways at the same time” signs were then designed and posted.

The subject matter of the note that landed on my desk simply stated the issue at hand, a sort of cramping of the style of the sinodal, aptly called “My Cramp” (Krampf is the word in the Urtext).
