Yeah… you did swim the Tiber for this my friend.
Did you think that there wasn’t going to be spiritual warfare? You expected it as a Baptist…how much more so as a Catholic, okay?
You are there for a reason, and you just got the wake up call.
I meet with the director of Religious Ed at a local Parish. A very nice older lady, … and then I wished I hadn’t went.
Yeah… been there a time or two myself. I love the colors they turn when you stick to your guns.
We don’t genuflect anymore. ever.
:shrug: We musta missed that memo from Rome. I KNOW I did. Do it anyway, and watch how fast the practice takes off all over the parish, especially if you face the Blessed Sacrament every time like I do.
We receive Eucharist in the hand. People feed themselves, you know!
This is no problem actually, since the early church did and one saint told everyone to make a throne out of their hands for the Lord Our King of Kings! Bow or genuflect before you receive and let 'em deal with it.
I wish we had women Priests.
Yeah… and if wishes were horses then beggars would ride. Don’t sweat it…it ain’t gonna happen.
You like Scott Hahn? Why? He isn’t good to listen too.
I’m sure Dr. Hahn stays awake at night fretting over granny’s opinion. (NOT!) I think you just figured out who really isn’t good to listen to, right?
I wish the members of this Church would get with the times. It’s the twenty first century.
I hate it for her. May the Lord be merciful to her before He takes her.
Never Kiss a Bishops ring. If you bend over he will think you are falling.
Do it anyway. Set the example. And never fail to pray diligently for the bishop and all our priests.
All this and more things that I had learned were part of the faith… All Orthodox and normal, and then I hear this???
Matthew 10:36 and a man’s foes will be those of his own household. And you just met her. :shrug:
I didn’t say a word. Afterall, I’m not even officially Catholic.
Hot news flash buddy. If you get dead tomorrow they will bury you as a Catholic, and at this point, you’re already a more faithful Catholic than she is.
It is disheartening to say the least. The Catholicism I love is orthodox Catholicism, not cafeteria style. She went on and on about her disgust for people in the parish who were doing tings that Catholics SHOULD do. I meet with the Priest later this week for personal instruction. I cannot attend regular RCIA because of my work schedule. I hope he feels differently than her.
I agree 100% and I’ll wager he’s way better than she is. Don’t sweat her, just start in doing exactly what you know you’re supposed to do. Many saints have had to do something similar and it is my opinion that this is precisely why Our Lord has you entering the church in that parish.
Wanna really mess up her day? Begin praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet novena for her asap. I did that and the anti-Catholic guy I was praying for was ready to convert by the time I finished it. the Holy Spirit is just like a K-Mart radio…He don’t play.
Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum.
