wondering...

I've been reading Catholic Answers Forum for about a year and judging from the questions and responses there and from reading several big time professional Catholic blogs I've come to the sad conclusion that a lot of mainstream American Catholics are unknowingly, really Roman Protestants. 40+ years of bad to non-existant catechesis has had tragic results.


Our Lady of Akita, pray for us.

I agree...they stopped using the Baltimore Catechism after VII, but never replaced it with a consistent cathechism until JPII gave us the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

It is sad how little Catholics know about their faith.

I am hopeful! Catholics have been wandering in the spiritual desert for about 40 years (but we didn't know we were!). Now we know and are waking up, thanks to blogs like this and the Catholic Answers website.

I have an interesting story on my blog about how a Gen-Xer was robbed of her faith. She did rediscover it though...

I agree.
Sometimes I can't believe the answers & conversations on the CATHOLIC Answer Forums.
