Seen on the web: Disappointment

What does it mean to be Catholic?

Today, I experienced sadness as I visited St. Mark’s parish to unite with Pope Francis’ peace initiative.

I wished to do so in within a church.

I believe that “the Catholic community of St. Mark the Evangelist” consists of more than 30,000 Catholics.

Went I went there today to unite with Pope Francis, five people were present.

Not once this week did the main page of “the Catholic community of St. Mark the Evangelist’s” web site even bother to exhort the Faithful to fast and pray in unity with Pope Francis and his peace initiative.

The parish…sorry…”the Catholic community” in question was not interested in leading organized public prayer in unity with the Pope Francis and his peace initiative.

What does it mean to be Catholic? Today, it felt barren and empty to me at “the Catholic community of St. Mark the Evangelist.”

More than 30,000 Faithful…larger than a great many towns across the country and world…and we failed to unite publicly in a spirit of fasting and prayer as Pope Francis desired.

Please pray for me as I fell empty inside. Oh, well. That is Novus Ordoism for you.

  1. I hope they prayed anyway?
    The Church should always try and put itself out of its way to pray especially in a call to obey Pope.Francis.
    But after Our Lord cured ten lepers only one was healed and came back to thank him and he was the Son of God himself!
    Bad communications rather than Bad attitude may often be the cause but we should never give up trying!
