If you’re Catholic and don’t know what “rorate caeli” means, you are out of touch with your own liturgical heritage.

Baptized Catholic, raised Pentecostal Christian, public school kid. Latin seemed like a waste 57 years ago, since nobody outside of the liturgy speaks it any more. Married Catholic (to a former nun), choir member and occasional cantor when needed.

I believe that God looks upon the heart rather than upon the form of worship, so long as you accept Christ.

Jesus said that if we love him, we must keep his commandments. He also said that he who hears the apostles hears Him and the Father. Catholic bishops are the designated successors of the apostles, and therefore speak for them — something no one else can claim. If you accept Christ there are consequences for the way you live, including the way you worship. Faith without works is dead — and dead faith saves nobody.

Life is short, and eternity is forever. Come home to the Catholic Church.
