There will always be disputes within the Catholic Church. History shows that sometimes a council or synod is needed to resolve the disputes. Other times, one would simply turn to the priest or the Holy See to resolve the issue.
There are times when misunderstandings, arguments, and disputes arise between brothers inside the Catholic Church. We are all human, and we all make mistakes. We all sin, and our sin not only offends God, but negatively affects other people. Sometimes, a brother commits a sin against another brother. Those who walk in the Neocatechumenal Way understands this very well. There are times, a person has irked or angered us because of an injustice that was done on us. The Holy Bible tells us how to resolve these kinds of issues:
Matthew 18:15-17 "If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that 'every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.' If they refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.
Simple arguments can be resolved if they follow what is written in the Holy Bible. "Taking it to the Church" means one is to take the problem to the priest or to the Vatican to have the issue resolved so that the brothers and sisters can be reconciled. Reconciliation is the goal. Taking your argument to the media only causes division within the Church and ridicule the other person. How can the media reconcile two parties?
Furthermore, the Holy Bible says that if the person refuses to listen even to the Church, one is to treat that person as you would a pagan or a tax collector. And how did Christ treat the pagans and tax collectors?? He treated them with love. Both Matthew and Zecchaeus were cheating tax collectors. Jesus chose Matthew as His Apostle and He chose to dine in Zacchaeus' home. Christ also showed kindness to the pagans and even forgave the pagan Roman soldiers who nailed Him to the cross.
We look to the Pope to teach us how to walk the right path. St. John Paul II once told the Christians in the Middle East not to side with Israel or with the Palestinians. As Christians, we are to work for peace and reconciliation between the two.
In the same way, unity and reconciliation has always been the goal of the Catholic Church. I pray for both the Archbishop and for Father Paul. I pray for reconciliation between the two Catholic brothers.
