Have you ever tried on a belief and subsequently wanted to take it off again?
What I’m certain of: I’m not 100% in line with the Church and I doubt I ever will be. I am certain I am not alone: polling data among Catholics proves that.
Instead of continuing to worry about it, I mean to stay focused on a practical application of the positive things I picked up in church: to live rightly, with joy, compassion, and forgiveness.
After all, right living is what’s most important. I believe what a person shows me over what they say. For love is dead without deliberate action. It doesn’t happen by accident or wishes.
