Numerous Catholics have weighed in on establishing a blog with information about the authenticity of Catholic teaching at parishes - parishes to flock to, parishes that are pretty good, parishes that are solid - some traditional, some charismatic - parishes to completely avoid, parishes that may have solid parochial vicars but the pastor is a train wreck, parishes that may have great confessors but other problems exist -- etc.
There are enough people who want to establish a resource, and so it will be moving forward.
But, it's more complicated than one might think. Some will be easy to place with a the stamp of approval, like Mary Immaculate of Lourdes and on the other end of the spectrum, the clapping fornicators, like Holy Family in Concord. There are others that may be on the way up the mountain that are better served with encouragment rather than hang an albatross around the neck.
The parties interested in putting up a blog, will be needing some brainstorming as it progresses. Maybe it should start with some basics -- parishes that we know are good, solid, traditional or charismatic -- and parishes that we know are places that are dangerous to the salvation of souls.
I have some really smart, thoughtful, prayerful people who are readers of the blog. Please give it some thought -- and prayer -- and drop me a line with feedback - or post it in the comments section.
It would seem many abandoned when the shenanigans at parishes got to be a near occasion of sin. There are places now to go to and ones to definitely avoid and the information should be out there.
