“Members of my family, in the London diocese, were all commanded to stand for the reception of Holy Communion; their parish priest berated them that such behaviour would not be tolerated in “his church.” As if that were not shocking enough he labelled them, “cookie worshipers”!”
I’m just wondering to myself: just how bad does it have to get before we dump this Ecclesiastical establishment?
If they don’t believe in the Church’s central doctrines, and they don’t act like they do, just how long do we have to put up with it before calling out that the Emperor has no clothes? Seriously. As Catholics are we bound to stay in Communion with the open heretics? I don’t think so.
What’s really scary is the fact that most people in the pew won’t bat an eyelid at what this priest says. 40 years of social justice drugs does that to you. But as for the rest of us, we need to do something and let the professionals know that it’s not business as usual anymore.
Maybe we can petiton Rome for our own Ordinariate within the Church, like the Anglicans got.
Dear Holy Father, please consider this our application for our little Ordinariate .
We like to call it “Catholic”.
