Back down on your knees

AP reports that the Pope intends to return to "the old way of distributing Communion at Masses.

Benedict's master of liturgical ceremonies said in an interview Wednesday in the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano that the pontiff will place the Communion host in the mouths of the faithful who kneel before him."

This makes me so angry that I want to shout really loud curse words.

I can understand your feelings Fran!

Still angry. Today I was out on my walk.

I realize that there is at least one moment a day when I really consider my Catholicism.

However, I also do love so much of it and I am in a great parish in a good diocese. (and a not so good TEC diocese)

So for now I stay, praying always, searching always, discerning always.

I'm glad you are staying, praying, searching and discerning. The truth of the matter is that no matter what our particular faith tradition is there are most likely things about it that frustrate us and challenge us. But there are also many more things the enliven our life and build us up spiritually.
