FROM TODAY'S BULLETIN...
Excerpt from a parish bulletin in Chicago. The Pastor writes in the bulletin: "I'll never forget the explanation I received from someone who wanted to become Catholic. The person told me that he had investigated a number of churches and couldn't find one that asked less of its members than the Catholic Church! It wasn't a hunger for holiness that brought him to us. Mediocrity was quite alright with him, thank you."
Strangely, that sounds more like some cradle Catholics I've known than it does like any convert I've met. Must be something in the water in Chicago.
