On twitter the other day, the idea arose of an online Catholic Reading Circle. In the first instance, we are proposing to read Sacrosanctum Concilium.
I promised I'd post some ideas for discussion on how this might work in practice, so here goes.
I suggest that we agree to read the agreed text by the weekend, at which time I will post some questions for discussion.
Discussion will take place in the comms box.
To make that work, I suggest that we refer to the questions and the paragraphs of SC by paragraph number, and that we also number the paragraphs in our responses, so that we can easily refer to each others' responses.
I also suggest that we agree to discuss the document for a week or so; so that anyone away at the weekend can take part, and also so that there is time for reading, reflecting on, and responding to each others' contributions.
I also propose that this is a discussion for those supportive of, or genuinely interested in understanding, the Magisterium. It will be moderated (by me) and people whose past contributions on other blogs have been boring ( to me) or hostile to the Church need not bother posting. (You know who you are...)
If this discussion is useful, I suggest we then discuss how it went, with suggestions for improvements, and then agree on another book or text we would like to discuss, and agree who can take a lead role (eg suggest the questions for discussion) as I don't want to do it all...
These are ideas for discussion: please improve my ideas in the Comms box.
