Forget putting down others. That's negativity. What positives can we learn from the CC?<quoted text>
Theatrical is a great way to put it. It seems unless the adrenaline gets flowing at their services, the 'holy spirit' isn't present. If their adrenaline flows, then the spirit moved them. Same with individual scripture reading. They discern if they got it right by how their heart rate is. That's how I see it.
Very seldom, if ever, have I walked out of Mass feeling jacked up like I just saw a great movie or football game. I feel just the opposite. I feel peace, calmness, love, compassion, humble etc. Even if there was a fiery homily that got me excited, its not the Holy Spirit making me feel that way, its 'excitement.'
I've said before, I think the entire protestant evangelical service makes or breaks on whether or not the minister can move them. If he's not a charismatic articulate speaker, forget it.

For example, what does the CC say is Jesus' central message?
What can you tell us that is positive and uplifting?
