    That's actually a part of it - the diminishment of the solemn dignity of the mass but it extends to a lot of things. Some are obvious like the various erroneous prohibitions against kneeling to receive communion on the tongue or allowing Latin masses to be sung. Others are a deliberate rejection of doctrine or dogma in order to push certain social agendas such sanctioning collective absolution outside of emergencies or allowing the "cafeteria" approach to Catholic teachings in schools or in RCIA classes.

    You do continue to amaze me with the depth of your knowledge of the liturgy and dogma of the Catholic church.You put forth the church's tenants in a clear and concise way without judgemental comments and without the personal venom so often found in disillusioned Former Catholics .

    I have no quarrel with the RCC or any other historic Christian tradition. There's a reason they are 'historic'. The doctrines of Orthodoxy, Catholicism, and the great reformed churches of Protestantism are all worthy of endless study. A lifetime of effort would only scratch the surface. ;)

    I went to a Jesuit university, which was enough to disgruntle me as far as the Catholic church, but I'm not, and never have been, Catholic.

    That in itself is sign of GOD'S mercy to the Catholic church .Let me guess ,Georgetown, if so that would explain much about you !Georgetown is no longer considered to be a Christian university .The Jesuits took down the crucifixes as a cause of embarrassment to them while teaching the heathen and Islamic students .

    As usual, your guessing is wrong. So is referring to "tenants" of the Catholic Church; tenants are renters. The word you want is "tenets".

    LOL!

    I have to say that watching you two go at it is vastly entertaining. It's like watching a professional tennis match played with badminton rackets and beach balls. :p

    It's never too late for literacy. I still have some amount of (fading) hope for you. :p
