WHEN PEOPLE WANT THE CHURCH TO BE MORE INCLUSIVE, MAY I ASK WHAT THE HELL THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT, IF YOU WOULD PARDON MY FRENCH!
Young people told the pope this past week, among other things, that they want a more inclusive Church.
I am so confused by this.
I was taught as a child and I teach as a priest that every single Catholic without exception must by Church Law, the Third Commandment and Holy Obligation attend Mass each Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation--no exceptions except for poor health and a couple of other reasons.
You can't get more inclusive than that. And we encourage non Catholics to attend Mass and participate in every way except for the Reception of Holy Communion.
Can anyone out there in blog land tell me if they belong to a parish where the priest and congregation are not inclusive????????????
Confused in Richmond Hill!
