We Want to be Taught

I just became aware of a site that is encouraging the Magisterium to implement an Ordinary Sunday catechetical lectionary. Here is what I commented on the site:

“I am extremely aware of the need for catechesis for the people in the pews. I can site many reasons, but here are a few: 1) Unless self-motivated Catholics receive no continuing formation after religious studies in grammar school, or for the lucky ones high school; 2) I've often commented on the "la la" homilies especially in liberal dioceses; and 3) Catholics are strongly influenced by the secular culture in which they live, contrary to church teaching and filled with misinformation from the media, and they don't even realize it.”

I encourage everyone to go to this site and learn more:

There has been a lot of talk about the new evangelization; evangelization needs to start within ourselves, then within our local parish communities, then to the world at large.

Do you not see the need Christ has for you, as does His church? At this time when we are trying to protect our religious rights and support the efforts of Fortnight for Freedom, it is necessary for all of us to pray, inform ourselves, take action and be heard.
