Papal announcements

Papal announcements are a sort of Rorschach test. Everyone seems to read something different into them. And much of the reaction comes from people who are not Catholic. Maybe it's something like the American fascination with the British royal family.

As a Protestant, I've never been that interested in papal press releases. On the few occasions when I've read them, they've been remarkably unremarkable. Maybe people who disagree with Rome keep hoping that one day the Pope will say something that isn't Catholic, but that's not likely to happen.
