An interesting observation and comment. Since VCII, we have seen a rise in just the opposite - cultural catholics - who identify with the label while ignoring the precepts.
Pre-Vatican II complacent? Boy, I remember it kept me on my toes every minute of the day. What a challenge it was to be a practicing Catholic in those days (as opposed to the insipid “devoted” Catholics of today).
It was a Church of pray, pay and obey....
Not the way I recall it at all.
Pre-VII? You mean VI? Or just II or III?
It was a Church of pray, pay and obey:
Prayers, financial support of the Church, and obedience to God's laws were all wrong?
So what kind of faith is "questioning faith;" - its no faith at all.
the Sunday obligation,
Pardon, are you not acquainted with the Ten Comandments?
no understanding of the Churchs mission ...
"Salvation of souls" was not understood?
Yeah yeah yeah. Pre-Vatican II the Church was dung and now it’s wonderful. I’m weary of hearing this crap.
