Comments

Robert Miller

This fine reflection on my patron saint recalls a thought that has occurred to me many times over the last few years. There are, I think, remarkable similarities between the life, times and work of Bellarmine and the life, times and work of Ratzinger.

Both are profound and prolific theologians. Both place ecclesiology at the center of their concern. Both are champions of the compatibility of reason with faith. Neither is afraid to get into the "muck" of apologetics.

Bellarmine was perennially papabile, but his Jesuit profession rendered him "politically incorrect". Ratzinger already is showing how wrong were those who prophesied (or thought wishfully) that the Chair of Peter would tame him.
