MY COMMENTS ON THE LOSS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH BEING CATHOLIC AFTER VATICAN II SEEMS TO BE CONFIRMED IN THE POPE'S NEW EXHORTATION: JUST CALL IT MY CLAIRVOYANCE, NO?
The Church was more catholic prior to Vatican II meaning she was truly a dragnet getting the majority of Catholics to Mass each Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation. The good, bad, hot, tepid and cold came to Mass if not for the love of God then for the fear of hell.
At the personal judgement things would be sorted out by God to determine where the immortal soul would experience eternity.
What motivates the 5% to 30% of Catholics who regularly go to Mass and most receiving Holy Communion regardless of the non use of the Sacrament of Penance?
Also if we truly believe God acts apart from our participation, why hasn't Pope Francis called for the much less Pelagiasm of the Church of the East who not only baptize infants, but Confirm them as give them their First Holy Communion all at once?
