It has taken me a while to try to assertain which forum to put this post on. I finally decided on this one. Please advise if I chose the wrong one.
I think that the pastor of the parish that I am a member of is a living saint. I realize that we are not to judge, only God can judge his or anyone else’s soul but I have never encountered anyone like him before except in books about the lives of the saints. He was the celebrant of the Mass that I attended today. Having said this I have a problem with some members of my parish, namely the members of the Knights of Columbus. What I’m about to describe has happened several times. Today was for me a bridge too far so I tried to get in touch with the K of C located in our parish but the “contact us” will not accept comments without leaving my name and email address. This puts me in an awkward position that I don’t want to explain the reason right now. So I would like to discuss this with a member of the Knights who is basically a stranger to me right now although I’m ready to take the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune if necessary in my parish.
Mass was wonderful today. What it is meant to be. A little bit of heaven on earth. After I received the Eucharist the Mass seemed to end so very suddenly, I didn’t want to leave but I was with my husband so I did. As I was leaving, still filled with the wonder that just happened I was met with a person ( a K of C member) screaming like a carnival barker inviting everyone to the K of C breakfast. This was so jarring. Is there a member of the KOC on this forum who would like to discuss this with me? Do you or does anyone else see the problem here? Why oh why do people in your organization do this? I would appreciate any replies or comments.
