Today at Mass our priest gave a homily about how “God is love. He doesn’t care about anything except having us become the person we are meant to be. He doesn’t even care about our sin.” He went on to say:
"I believe the Catholic Church is the greatest expression of God’s love of all the other Christian denominations, but it has too many rules! Rules about homosexuality, priests needing to be male and celibate, and who is worthy to receive Him in Communion. I tell you, God is only about love not rules! "
He continued in this vein and I could see parishioners nodding their heads in agreement.
I am a fairly recent revert and find this kind of talk to be very very disturbing. Isn’t being Catholic following the teachings of the Magisterium?
Do you have any advice for me? Am I taking what the priest said wrong?
