CNS STORY: New Vatican doctrinal chief talks about SSPX, LCWR discussions.
I agree. I know so little about this man and want to know him better. He holds a very influential post within the Church.
I’ve definitely heard some silly sermons and lessons over the years. What springs to mind first though, when reading your post, is not a sermon but rather a lecture at one evening’s RCIA class in which I was present as a sponsor. The instructor, who I believe had a degree in Theology, actually stood up there in front of us all and proceeded to tell us of the glories of Hinduism and how their methods of prayer and meditation could benefit us. He also took a good five minutes encouraging us to go rent and watch the movie “The Devil’s Advocate”. Now I’d seen that movie years before, and I was shocked to hear someone who was instructing us in the Catholic faith tell us to go watch it. The movie was filled with seductive and at times quite pornographic imagery. His reason for recommending it? “Al Pacino plays the best Devil you’ll ever see!”
Words fail me.
Thanks Mr. V. But I think you meant to reply to the previous post. It didn’t make sense to the WordPress filter and placed this in the spam box. Sorry about that.
Huh….well, I feel sheepish. 😀 How in the heck did this happen?
I guess this gives me reason to coin a new aphorism: Never post a comment before 0600. I’m just glad I got it onto the right blog.
Maybe Al Pacino made you do it? 😛
