I hope it’s ok to post this here…In September I will be starting RCIA at (as far as I can tell anyway) an orthodox Catholic parish that has EF Masses on Holy days and such. * If any of you out there could pray for me I’d much appreciate it.*
Last year I attended RCIA at a different parish. It was not a good experience; that parish was very dedicated to modernist ideology. The catechist repeatedly told the RCIA class that it’s ok to be “pro-choice” and Catholic. (I recently, belatedly, reported her to the Archdiocese and the CDF, so I’ve probably got a target on my back now.)
I have been interested to read what some of the early church Fathers said about the See of Peter, and I find it interesting that the Vatican is also physically built on Peter’s tomb, so I feel I should give Catholicism another look. On the other hand I really have a problem with some of the things I’m reading in Vatican II documents, and with the Alinskyite-Marxist agenda of the USCCB. I see huge similarities between the Puritan iconoclasts of 16th century England and the “Spirit of Vatican II” modernists of the past four decades; they did the SAME THINGS such as ripping out tabernacles, replacing altars with movable tables, de-sacramentalizing the liturgy, etc… Hopefully the catechists can help explain these things to me; where the real Church is and how she will actually survive such a messed up time as the modern era has become.
