Lately I have been thinking that I should give up going to my local parish with its n.o. mass (I go daily) and just attend a tlm further away (would attend weekly). I have a lot of concerns about our church as a whole and I am starting to have many doubts about the last fifty or so years (please PLEASE do not comment in any way that will get this banned).
When I try to talk about it with people, fellow parishioners, friends, they are either in complete denial or foaming at the mouth about it. Politics isn’t the only place that has lost its moderates it seems.
My concerns range from is what I am participating in even valid? Is it truly catholicism as my grandparents would recognize it? I’m not sure how to even write this here because I do not want to be banned or get this thread deleted.
I’m not even sure how to communicate what I want to ask so I’m sorry if this seems a bit erratic. When I look things up online trying to address these concerns I find a lot of schismatic material, it just feels too far for me right now.
If you are going to say something the least controversial, please pm me.
