We see that the controversy over admitting the divorced and remarried to Holy Communion continues after the Synod, but why? It continues because there is much at stake. It also continues because our relationship with Christ can sometimes be more in our heads than in our hearts. Thomas Stark, a prominent philosopher at the Univ of St Polten in Austria, much like a coach who knows athletes, credibly explains* why some educated people persist in contradicting solid thinking and Church teaching. We also see this phenomenon present in the scribes at the healing of the paralytic (Mark 2: 1 – 12).
