Christ - an excuse to talk about something else

Sandro Magister had a good article the other day entitled: Antichrist Alert! Cardinal Biffi Rouses the Church. H refers to a new work published by Cardinal Biffi, "Pinocchio, Peppone, the Antichrist, and other Meanderings." Biffi looks at the confused religious identity of our times with its emphasis on openness, its obsession with "dialogue" at all costs, where little remains of the unique and incomparable person of the Son of God who was crucified for us, rose from the dead, and is now alive.
It is the situation that Fr. Divo Barsotti denounced in an extraordinary, and extraordinarily true, statement, when he said that in the Catholic world of our time, Jesus Christ is too often simply an excuse to talk about something else."
