I live 30 miles from the nearest catholic church and 45 miles to the next one so basically the one 30 miles away is the only choice geographically
We have 2 priests one follows church teaching but the older one tries to constantly walk the edge of talking about what frustrates him about the church. The majority of people that follow church teachings have left for another parish. But as I said that’s way to far for my family it would be over an hour drive in each direction and 3000’ of snowy mountain roads. But also we could be on the edge of bringing back to orthodox teaching with the younger priest.
I am really frustrated though because of
A) the orthodox Catholics dont attend the local church
B) the older priest seems like he had done a lot of damage because many lapsed Catholics are attending fundemenlist churches in my town.
What to do???
