Go to Mass – Crisis Magazine (8/24/20)
Excerpt: “There have been countless reforms proposed for the Catholic Church. There seems to be a disenchantment with God, Church, and worship that can only be described as an attack on the divine. Those inside and outside the Church attempt to expound on the elephant in the room or the enemy that is tearing her apart.
For those in the Church, there could be a number of factors causing rifts: clerical sex abuse scandals, the bankruptcy of dioceses, diocesan school closures, fiscally struggling and communally dead parishes, and now the possibility of low return to Sunday Mass during this initial period of post-pandemic restrictions. We must remember, however, that behind, below, and at the foundation of all enemies of God and humanity is evil itself. The small showing at Sunday worship is his latest victory, but he is using old tricks.”
