I grew up Lutheran. It is of constant consternation and amazement to me that I have had to fight with Catholics over what the Catholic Church teaches about the Eucharist. I have met Lutherans who believe more about the Eucharist than a few of my seminary profs. I am not exaggerating.

As things rev up toward 2017 and the Lutherfest, much about Catholic Lutheran dialogue will be in the offing. You will read lots of blah blah about…

  1. Bravo! Go team! I’ve got a few scars myself. In RCIA, the DRE was a RSM who thought she’d be a better Pastor than our Pastor and was working towards women’s ordination. I challenged her heresy in front of the class and it nearly cost me Baptism, Confirmation and First Holy Communion at the Vigil. I got there, but it was very obvious to me that I wasn’t welcome, nor were my children because they were mine. Heresy hurts everyone. We are all being robbed by it, whether or not we are aware of it. We are living through exceedingly dark times. When history writes about what is going on, it will tell the tale much differently than those who speak about such things today. Heresy? What heresy? There’s no such thing anymore. Just about the finish Burke’s book Divine Love Made Flesh. I love the man. I wish he were my Pastor. Sigh. Nuff said. God bless. Ginnyfree.
