I remember the day when a Catholic priest would refuse Holy Communion is he smelled alcohol on ones breath.

These abortion loving Catholics need to be confessing their pro abortion sin in the Confessional. I remember confessing my lustful desires in the Confessional. The priest would warm my ears real good and sometimes ask if I was in last week with the same sins (he recognized my voice because I was one of his altar boys). I would rack up the Rosary beads for each incident. The nuns in the church would definitely take notice as I spent penance time before the Virgin Mary.

I wonder how much Confession time these abortion loving Catholics do spend as a practice of their faith? Are they serious about the practice of their faith or is it a just a social event to make themselves look good?

You're dating yourself. Many of those teaching orders got silly after VCII and certain bishops altered their seminary recruitment practices to be more 'inclusive'. Worse yet, western society has shifted into secularism. In his pre-conclave homily, then Cardinal Ratzinger warned the Cardinals: “A dictatorship of relativism is being formed, one that recognizes nothing as definitive and that has as its measure only the self and its desires.”. He continues to assail moral relativism today.

I'm laughing here - our new young priest must be the cousin of your man! He hands out Rosaries with a heavy hand (I deserved it, too!)

Judging from our younger men, serious Catholicism is on the way back. I hope it's here to stay! If I had wanted lukewarm Christianity, I could have stayed an Episcopalian!
