Touche, universe, touche.
“Sorry to be a wet blanket, but the Catholic Church is not going to change its teaching on any of the fun stuff (contraception, female “ordination,” homosexuality, abortion, etc.) with the next pope.
Nor will it ever.
Our call to live counter-culturally is as old as the church itself. We believe in a God who lived among us, died for us, and showed us the way to live lives of courage and conviction—whatever our culture. Catholics are called, yes, to engage with the society around them, but not to adapt ourselves to the popular sentiments of our time. Instead, Catholics are called to live in radical service to our God. This includes loving our neighbor as ourselves. This also includes letting go of pleasure as the path to happiness (spoiler: it’s not). There’s nothing modern —or moderate —about that.” (Click title for more….)
Best quote in this:
The Catholic Church has an Old Man River thing going on. She just keeps rolling, she keeps on rolling along. You can stand on the shores. Or jump in. It’s your choice. But she’s not changing course. Thank God.
Instead I gained some. Funny what the truth will do for you! Welcome =)
While under one of my worst spiritual attacks, this is what Satan whispered in my ear- “Leave it all. Focus on you for a while. Stop serving.”
Good thing God is bigger.
