Who would have thought it? The pope agreeing the social work by the church is not an end in itself. It is to be used in accordance with the Gospel and the teachings of the church.

With this bit of sanity in place, one can see why people leave TEC to join the RCC.

..... Also note carefully that it didn't say "in conformity with the requirements of God"
