All the worries concerning BECs would fade rapidly away if they all took as their charter - as they should - chapter 30 of Christifideles Laici, on the "Vocation and the Mission of the Lay Faithful in the Church".
And if they did that and were honest to it, they really would begin a springtime in the Church.
Bring on all groups of the laity that do so show loyalty to the Church. We need them.
