Video | Cardinal Schönborn: Amoris Laetitia Requires Serious Theological Discussion

Writing for the National Catholic Register, Edward Pentin discusses what Cardinal Christoph Schönborn told academics in Austria one day after the publication of Amoris Laetitia:
Speaking on Pope Francis’ new post-synodal apostolic exhortation on the family at the International Theological Institute in Trumau April 9 (see video of full talk below), the Archbishop of Vienna said there are "no forbidden questions" when discussing the text.
Compared to his presentation at the Vatican the day before, the cardinal, who is chancellor of the institute, was a little more cautious about the document and, although enthusiastic about it, he appeared to downplay its significance. It is not an encyclical, he stressed, and that while one should listen to it with a "readiness to submission", there should "not be a refusal to discuss" its contents.
"Pope Francis would be the last one not to want to discuss what he proposes," Cardinal Schönborn said. "We need this frank discussion because we are all in search of truth."
The following videos are of Cardinal Schönborn's presentation of  Amoris Laetitia before scholars at the International Theological Institute in Trumau, Austria on April 9th. [From Mr. Pentin's YouTube channel.]
