Some provocative ideas, e.g. challenging reader to review "habits" in seeking to be holy, to be best person he/she can be.
Author is obviously speaker not writer. Glosses over institutional impediments to "change" in the Church. Suggests laity should get involved, but doesn't suggest how, considering the patriarchal church. He thinks "change" is needed, but belittles those wanting structural change or reconsideration of celibacy, women's role, treatment of divorced Catholics, etc.

Worth a "quick" read, but needs to be taken for the fluff it is.
