Another perspective on ad orientem--the priest leading
I thought it was a rather fair video, actually.
Maybe Fr. McDonald can reach out to that young man and let him know he is welcome to visit his parish.
I have two problems with this: First that "Fr MacDonald said the Catholic Church is changing its stance to become more accepting. I don't see how much more accepting we can be when homosexuals are prominent in nearly every parish. They have not been challenged before now to deal with their homosexual urges appropriately are now angry at the change of direction. Secondly, the young man did not have a seeking attitude toward God, he would "try out" a new church. And he already made his mind up about the Church because he wants a church that will not ask him to conform to God's will, but will just let him coast along. The good news is that he understood the Church as the being at the absolute bottom of his list. That is where it should be. Once you have found what you seek, you stop looking.
I didn't like the opening sentence, "The Vatican is making an effort to fill more pews." Is that what this is about? Sales and Marketing? I thought it was about clarification and translating Catholic belief to today's world.
