You either are a 'practicing' catholic or you are not. You can't pick and choose which of the sacraments or which of the traditions you follow. If you do you are a social catholic or a cultural catholic but not a 'practicing' catholic.
True enough, friend, but is your tone a little accusatory? Is there anything this writer said, that would suggest that she is moving in the wrong direction on this?
My take is, this is a move toward greater perfection. I, myself, have found this a gradual process. One which has required patience, patience, patience... and a willingness to admit fault over and over.
