I know that Infallibility is on the issues degreed by the Pope of Rome on issues of Faith & Morals…therefore, the sport of crossbow shooting doesn’t seem to meet that criteria.
Meanwhile, I am truly confused at how the Catholic Church has an Infallible Pope, but yet seems not to have any real control of the Church. Each individual parish seems to do their own thing when it comes to Liturgy aka Mass. In some parishes, the Tabernacle is in the Church & in other Roman Catholic Churches the Tabernacle is down the hall, around the corner, two doors down on the left in the closet of that room (literally!). What is the point of having Infallibility or having a Pope, Archbishops & Bishops? If they don’t enforce the teachings of the Church?
I’m not trying to be sarcastic. I just really don’t understand. Since leaving the Catholic Church for the Orthodox Church, which has no ultimate authority other than the Original Councils, there are no issues or problems with this type of thing. You go from one parish to another between Greek, Russian, OCA, Serbian, etc. & the Tabernacle is always where it’s supposed to be and the actual Divine Liturgy (Mass) is identical. I really don’t understand…the true Church is supposed to be “One”, but I only see division in the practice of Faith & Morals in the Roman Catholic Church, the true Church is supposed to be “Holy”, but I just went to a daily Mass in a Catholic Church which took all of 20 minutes and did not see/experience anything which appeared to be holy. I clearly see that both the Orthodox Church & the Roman Catholic Church are both “Catholic” & “Apostolic”.
Someone, please explain this to me.
