Thinking of Leaving The Catholic Church?

The emergency exit sign next to a side door of St. Michael's Cathedral.

There is little comfort in the visible Church now. The liturgy, set upon by thieves, is lying in the ditch: contemplatives are mouthing political slogans in the streets; nuns have lost their habits along with their virtues, virgins their virginity, confessors their consciences, theologians their minds. And, if this is true, it is a “happy chance!” - because there is absolutely no reason left to be Catholic now except the only one there ever really was - that in the invisible life of the Church you will find the love of Christ.                                    -  John Senior


  1. A very apt and creative post!


  2. The only reason left to stay in the Church is because what it teaches is true.
