Mark Silk at Spiritual Politics has an update on the fallout over the Pope's remarks about condoms.
I suspect Silk is right that the Holy Father will, at some point, issue a more thorough clarification but maybe not. The other day a priest friend said that the Vatican simply does not understand modern communications and it needs to. I think he is right they don't understand modern communications, but I also suspect the Pope wonders how vital the 24/7 news cycle is in the long term and perfers to ignore it.
