The Eucharist: Corpus Christi?

The Eucharist: Corpus Christi?

  1. Now, I just wish that every Priest believed in the Transubstantiation, but, by their care-free behaviour in the Sanctuary in many cases. it is obvious there is a great lacking in belief.
    By their fruits you shall know them- and the fruits are lacking in every case where the Priest is a non-believer.

  2. Jackson: Sadly, you'll get no argument from me. Perhaps though the trick is to pray for such priests and trust that with God's help they might find their way back to the faith.

    1. Father, I believe they never had the Faith to begin with. As in the case of the Newfoundland situation years ago, some became Priests just to have victims readily available to a Priest's whims.

    2. Jackson: I fear you're right again. Becoming a priest is an easy way for a wolf to make his way into the sheepfold... as history as made all too clear. Still, I know that at least some of them did have the faith when they were ordained and either because they let slip the disciplines of the priestly life or due to some psychological defect, they failed in a most sinful, and terrible way... and at the horrific cost they burdened their victims with. I most certainly would not want to be standing in their shoes come the day of judgement, but I still pray for those few anyway.
