A Church in Confusion
October 7, 2013•123 min
It seems harder and harder to find Catholics who know why we’re Catholic. Whether laity or clergy, people seem increasingly more disoriented in their faith-journey, and more and confused about the significance of the faith. This is due to the Church’s failure to consistently and clearly teach/define “Catholicism” to the laity, the tendency of the laity to define the faith for themselves, and the inclination of Catholics to use their political disposition to define the faith. Tell them “The Church has no equal”, and they’ll call you crazy. Tell them “The Church’s mission is salvation” they’ll tell you “No, it’s about love”. Because so many Catholics are getting it wrong, many Catholics are abandoning the faith without even realizing it.
