I hope today's post doesn't sound as though I'm being unduly critical of these Catholics. That is not my intention at all. I only hope to point out how the soul searching - mandated by the Troubles in the Church - is forcing Catholics to examine their own souls and their own commitment to the faith. The opinions that people are forming and re-formulating in their efforts to 'think with the Church' are eye opening. They are mirrors to our own souls and our own struggles. In prayer and sacrifice, there is so much potential within this moment. There is the joy of filial duty and the graciousness of submission to the wisdom of God. There is the simplest act of faith in observing the customs of our culture. In the winds that now blow, we need merely hold fast to the rock of salvation.
