The Pontificator on limbo, Part III

Yesterday I posted that Al Kimel's recent treatment of the limbo issue had been noted with some approval by Richard John Neuhaus at First Things. I neglected to point out, however, that Fr. Neuhaus had also cited law professor Robert Miller's defense of the traditional doctrine. Kimel has now replied to that defense with, I must say, a deep and balanced article at Pontifications.

Given that the Vatican's International Theological Commission is about to issue the result of a long consideration of the limbo issue, the present blog discussion should and will provoke further thought in those with the time to follow it. By all means chime in here.
