Christian Unity Week.


This is the week of prayer for Christian unity.
.
It was a big deal when I was in grade school just before Vatican II.  I think the Pope believes it's a big deal too.  I don't think that many Catholics agree that it is however, considering how divided Catholics themselves seem to be...
.
Skip around the Catholic blogosphere and tell me if you'd like to unite with the Catholic Church if you weren't already Catholic.  I love this one: "Chris Matthews is an odious swine!"  And then: "Medjugorje: Dialog? We Don't Need No Stinking Dialog!"  Of course you can be pretty darn sure anything on: "Catholic Caveman" is going to be offensive.   And usually any post that begins with: "You can't be Catholic and ___!"  As well as several posts on:  "Athanasius Contra Mundum". 
.
I'm included in this slam-bam fest too you know: "Catholicism as a Game Show - on Indifferentism and Latitudinarianism."  Or: "Outing Priests and Bishops..."  Back at you though - anything by "Sr. Patricia" - (yeah, she just looks sweet.)  Or: "Dear Person who says all the responses in Mass quicker than every one else and really really loudly..." and just about anything else on K's blog. (I know - ain't she nothin'!) 
.
Oh - and don't forget this one - which I really agree with BTW: "I am not going to Hell for anybody and especially not for refusing to ruffle feathers."
.
Praying for Christian Unity.  Ah uh.
.
Good nite Lonnie Anderson.

  4. Terry: Just dealing with a Fr. Feeney follower on the "outside the Church there is no salvation"...yikes!
    Every arcane document or saying from some Pope or another, dealing with some situation in their own times, which does not in essence, change the teaching of the Church is dug up and obsessed about.
    The "Catechism of the Catholic Church" is the authoritative document here (as well as "Dominus Jesus")since we do, in fact, live in a Church that is living.

  6. I like the Catholic Cavemen most of the time. They make a point. But sometimes, yes, I do have to grimace and wonder how far they need to take things. Then again, I know people feel that way about my blog!

  7. And then again, I know that people feel that way about my blog too. I am the pot who calls the kettle black - and I never learn!
