Dan, catholicism that was practiced in the 1950s and before, is much different than how MOST catholics look at their faith today.
Pre 1960 over 80% of roman catholics attended weekly sunday mass. Today according to the bishops conference in america the numbers are reversed as only about 20-25% of roman catholics attend mandatory sunday mass and less than 3% attend daily mass that is available in most cities/communities around america.
Over 85% of roman catholics acknowledge they use or have used forms of birth control the church says is sinful. Recent studies indicate over half of all roman catholics are not against abortion. Millions of roman catholics are divorced or seperated and have other partners which the church says is adultery. Thousands of roman catholic priests have been caught having sex with our children and the catholic clergy who did not molest, lied, and covered up for those that did, committing mortal sins themselves and each gave themselves holy communion at every mass they said while telling the followers they could never receive the eucharist with such sins on their own souls.
HIPOCRICY!!
.......Staunch catholics you say! A very small fast disappearing group in the western world.
Your first sentence here is indicative of your rather jumbled approach.

"Dan, catholicism that was practiced in the 1950s and before, is much different than how MOST catholics look at their faith today."

It's the same Catholicism-the people have changed their approach. Two different things, which you attempted to conflate.

......and the scandal card gets played.

If you were pasting up recipes, you'd figure a way to make mention of it.

I don't think its about 'modernizing' to get known. I grew up two blocks from an Orthodox Church.(Holy Trinity Orthodox Church on Forest st, in saint Paul, MN.) I didn't have a clue who they were and still don't. I have to study and study today just to figure out who you guys are.
Meanwhile, the Catholic Church is not so hidden. The entire world knows who they are and what they claim. Pope Francis stood on the balcony, and every single channel on this planet was tuned in as he asked for prayers and led the world in reciting the Lords Prayer.
That's a visible known Church, Herm. Only Jesus could orchestrate that kinda Church. The truth can't be hidden like it is with you and the 45,000 protesters.
Another thing I love about the CC is that they don't skirt around countless articles of faith, like the evangelicals They do not ask us Catholics to become stupid. They don't require us to force ourselves into ignorance. All questions are tackled head on, so that we way know what to believe and why to believe it.
Clay, Nick said he doesn't have time to reply to you right now cuz he is watching Jerry Springer. But he will be more than happy to explain to you after/

There is a prevalent belief that these politicians and others who profess to be Catholic yet actively enable abortion have excommunicated themselves to some degree.
A memorandum of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on "Worthiness to Receive Holy Communion", signed by its Prefect Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and published in July 2004, declared that, if a Catholic politician's formal cooperation in "the grave sin of abortion or euthanasia" becomes manifest by "consistently campaigning and voting for permissive abortion and euthanasia laws", the politician's pastor is obliged to instruct the politician about the Church's teaching and inform him that he should not present himself for Holy Communion as long as the objective situation of sin (regardless of whether subjective guilt exists or is absent) persists, warning him that, if he does present himself in those circumstances, he will be refused. As in the case of divorced and remarried Catholics, if these precautionary measures fail to obtain the desired effect or are impossible, "and the person in question, with obstinate persistence, still presents himself to receive the Holy Eucharist,'the minister of Holy Communion must refuse to distribute it'".[17]
I remember that and thought it a good thing ..really..But they obviously and publicly found priests to give them communion..this was when Kerry was running .

Anyway..my point is this,..these,are grave matters,involving enabling
Death ..Not just two people,who cannot get along in their marriage,and choose not to go for annulment(no comment at this time,)

ANY WAY ..would it not maybe s he lives,and,souls,to publicly threaten any politician with excommunication ..I'm sure the big guys,WOUKD nit be phased ..But what about that new,congress,person or Senator ...their votes,might just save lives,...just saying .

It's,the,same thought ..though way in the past ..if why monarchs,who
Killed and tortured people in the name of the CHURCH ..HAD THEY BENN threatens or actually excommunicated ...thy could NOT use that as an excuse,

Your church has a,powerful tool..thy us it in poor miserable divorce folks,..But not on mass,murderers...or enablers.

I don't understand that at all.

There are two kinds of contrition, one out of fear or loss of heaven, and the other out of love for God(imperfect and perfect), and I do see what you are saying.
What concerns me is that each of us is an imperfect creature(though made new in Christ, assuming one is born again), and that each of us then becomes responsible for our own thoughts and actions. We become "little" kings and priests, in our own selves, and set up our own judgments and rules. One of these is our relationship with God.
For some, very lost along the way of Christ, they are in need of guidance(though they think all is fine in their "little" kingdom). And thus reliance on a face to face encounter with someone is necessary.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation offers this encounter. An attentive priest is able to discern where one is at in their spiritual life. Often a few poorly said, Hail Mary's, is all a priest can "get" out of a non-spiritual person(kind of the opposite of what you might think!). But the effort is made for restoration. And even a small one is worth the effort.
I'm reading this,..looking at scripture,..I have no doubt Mary has,a,place of honor .

JESUS,I the ONLY REDEEEMER ..He did not say though must believe in Me,and my Mother .

About the Cenacle. That the Pope,wants,title to from the Israelis..

They quote This,passage

Yes,of course she prayed with the disciples,along with the brothers,
Of JESUS.

Now for my part ..I m leaving all the Mary stuff to find out in heaven ....children I think she had ..we shall see WHEN we meet theses people I imagine ..

But co redemption ..no. sorry ...

Divorced people are not excommunicated, Rose.

Excommunication isn't a vindictive penalty-it's a medicinal penalty, intended not so much to punish the excommunicant, as to correct him and bring him back to the correct path.
