Yes - every word - because the crazy cacophony of individual interests are looking for any opening, any possibility to gain a foothold against the traditional stand of the Catholic Church.
We have crazed and militant homosexuals, we have diehard abortionists, we have arch-feminists and all sorts of other outliers staring at every word to see if they can make inroads against one of the last bastions of Christian religious normalcy remaining.
Look what happened to the Lutherans, the Anglicans, the Methodists and so many others when they allowed even a toehold by these groups. This world is hurtling towards the toilet at supersonic speed and there are only a few faiths holding on by their fingertips.
Ironic that one Pope was canonized and known for standing up to communism and the current one is an advocate of it.
The Jesuits should have been dissolved a long time ago. A bunch of stinking liberals. The whole order.
Before the Catholic bashers start pouncing, mind your own business or get baptized.
"Popes do not issue marching orders daily, weekly, monthly, or even yearly. No person who is well-instructed in the Catholic Faith, and is sincerely practicing it, needs to follow the Popes doings and sayings. A Catholic is at liberty to like or dislike any Pope.
"If he dislikes a Pope, he should try to remain unaware of the day-to-day news about the Pope. The notion that all Catholics must heed the call of the Pope to conversion, or spiritual renewal or growth, etc., and must therefore read all of the Popes interviews and daily homilies, is silly. The call to all those good things is in Scripture and the constant teaching of the Church."
The crazed and the militant...great description. Those folks want the easy path. The Catholic Church doesn't, at first glance, extol the easy path. It teaches and extols GOD'S path, Jesus' path. Jesus SHOWED us that path.
It may seem difficult in our lives, but our lives are so short, aren't they?
For ETERNITY it's a path we want with all our minds and hearts, for THAT is the path to our Creator.
