    This is the Catholic Church I know from my childhood that nourishes my soul, This is the church that I love -only that it reflects with its life the life of Christ. This is the church that capitalize itself because of its communion with Christ and the meanest sinner. That presumption embarrasses me now. The current church is unrecognizable to me because I don't hear the voice of the Shepherd over the din of justified sin and self excuse, Living in Appalachia where Cat holism is a foreign language I try to express why I would hold on to this dinosaur of Latin costumes, customs, and government. It is the words of the saints and the actions of clear Truth that have stunned me. I understand that each Gospel passage has an aspect that has sparked the lives of saints and sinners to record it in words and actions at some moment of history and the Church somehow collects it all popular and unpopular controversial or not so that I can hear a direction for my thought and action with a confirmation of the Spirit within. The other communities are not less nor less loved of God or gifted but they are just young as the Church was once. You have nourished my soul today.
