Scots Catholic

Calling Scotland's 841,000 Catholics to unite as one voice

Scots Catholic Blog


Do you see Church teaching as a hindrance or something beautiful which brings freedom?

Posted on November 13, 2014 at 12:27 PM
A recent survey commissioned by United States bishops has found that many Catholic Mass-goers have a tendency to set aside Catholic rules they don't understand.  They also complain about the Church being involved in politics and avoid causes that they see as 'judgemental'. 
In contrast, the survey found that 'fervent' Catholics such as those who frequently attend Mass, are committed to evangelisation and see the Real Presence of the Eucharist as central, tend to view Catholic doctrine as beautiful and freeing, rather than just as restrictive rules.
Another finding of the survey is that young Catholics are increasingly sensitive to language that could imply judgement.  This is particularly important when you consider the ongoing debates around homosexuality, same sex marriage and abortion in our world today.  However, as Archbishop Thomas Wenski of Miami observed: 'while critical of the Church, they [young Catholics] can't imagine life without the Church.'
Tell us what you think about Church teaching and rules by adding your comment, below.  Do you see it as a hindrance to your life, or do you see it as something beautiful that is essential for your salvation?
