Yesterday on facebook, somebody posted that he didn't like being Catholic anymore.
I thought this person had to be pulling my leg. What's there not to be head-over-heels-in-love?!
But he was serious. Another poor soul advised him to seek refuge in a 'non-denominational church' (what the heck is that?!) because they don't "require" things like Confession, Jesus didn't 'require' Confession, so it was ok to find a place to 'worship' that doesn't have so many rules, works are not necessary - blah, blah.
Ugh. Our people are a hot mess.
I tried to explain that the entire purpose for Christ's Incarnation was to quite literally, leave us His Body and Blood, Sacraments for the Absolution of our sins to gain entry into Heaven, etc., and the Catholic Church was exclusively IT, but she was too far out on the limb with Shirley MacLaine.
I thought of her today when I heard today's readings.
Everything you need to know about the falsehoods of other 'churches' is right there in these two readings.
