Today on the digital, full version of the UK’s best Catholic Weekly, The Catholic Herald (to which you can subscribe from anywhere in the world), I found a good letter to the editor, an image of which I post, below:
“But Father! But Father!”, some of you are saying, “This fellow sounds like an old curmudgeon. Isn’t church our Father’s house? Shouldn’t houses be filled with life and activity and, yes, the chatter of the Father’s children? Vatican II said we ought to talk in church! You are mean and so is he. We are Church and community no matter what you papist throwbacks want. You hate Vatican II and I’m a Eucharistic Minister!”
In the face is such reasoned objections, how can I respond?
I’ll bet YOU can!
