A further thought of Peace and bedlam
I must ask the Hierarchy this question. How many more ways are you going to seek to destroy or dismiss the Sacrament of Reconciliation? Are there not enough who do not practice and receive what is a only a piece of bread. Will you correct me and say no one receives who does not receive grace, and say it without any qualifications of the rite. Again what will you tell Christ when you meet Him at your death in this world?
Many of the laity, if you ask, consider the sign of peace as forgiveness of sins. In some way each taking part receives forgiveness of some sin or other. Bishops you are seeking to almost remove the authority of Christ in some way and replace it with your institutions. So it would seem if you would examine your conscience and ask why did I make that decision or agree with that viewpoint. I am really so sorry for many of your actions and what they do collectively for your souls. I am surprised that it is not likened to the woman with the issue of blood who wonderfully through faith received some great favor from God. How long before some kind of charisma is apportioned to this rite, you have instituted?
This would also make sense to the catechism Teacher another of the women a member of the enchanted sisterhood and elder from the 70's. This woman told me there is no sin if one goes to one whom is offended against and sincerely apologizes. I asked where is Jesus in all of this? How much longer Bishops will it take for you to completely change the Priesthood to your view and make the priest irrevelant. I have heard RCIA teachers say we have to be prepared for the priesthood to vanish in many areas. Of course these are women and we know their point of view, blue stoles and all.
