I don't want to bother my priest with a little thing like that. Actually, I've just made a reasearch and found the answer: cuf.org/faithfacts/details_view.asp?ffid=261
But I'm still curious about your opinions on the subject.
I sense that you have a gentle soul :angel1:and were just trying to be kind. May I say that it would be best, in my opinion, not to attend. You will not be held to the "deal." Please tell them that although you will not be visiting their place of worship, that the Catholic Church allows people to enter, observe reverently, pray and sing. They do not need you to make any deals with them in order to be welcome to inquire.** You have no reason to inquire of their belief system. You are Catholic. **
Life here is so brief. With the exception of meetings or ecumenical dialogues vetted and approved by our Catholic Church leaders, I would not spend time investigating any other church simply in order to get them to visit ours. They are already very welcome to inquire. We can encourage them to do so in other ways, but this "deal" is not the way to go. Christ died for us, for His Church, and His Resurrection power assures ours. I will need my entire life devoted to Him and to Holy Church, and remain in awe at its wonder and majesty!
Why would we need more than the One Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, where we believe in the Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament, where we have all the other Sacraments :highprayer:to help us journey through life in the Church Christ Himself founded?
I would not spend any more time with these people, as they love to argue scriptures but have no authority. When people from various denominations come to my door, I politely tell them that I have no reason to debate. If they persist, I close the door. I do not say "God bless you" to them, as many of them they promote a false "cult."
Our Shepherd Christ leads us, so we do not need, nor should we spend our time on earth debating things that have already been answered within Christ's Holy Church. :gopray2:
*"God is not the author of confusion" :frighten:is a good scripture :bible1:to remember at this time. * Please stay away from these people, and if they ask you about the deal, all you have to do is tell them that you have had a change of heart.:heart: They are never barred from inquiring or visiting, and need no deal to allow that. But please do not attend with them at their "church."
*Your Shepherd, Christ, would want you to stay close to Him, Holy Church, and the Sacraments. You are a beloved Child of the Most High. *
"For we are bought with a price." is a sobering scripture :bible1:for us all.
A great price, the greatest love mankind has ever known.
Blessings, and all best prayers are coming your way!
