Another Catholic Call-In Scheduled

The following appeared on the Catholic Courier site yesterday ...

Catholics from throughout the 12-county Diocese of Rochester with questions about their faith can get answers during the "Catholic Call-In" from 2 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 12, by calling toll-free 1-866-595-8575. The call-in is a part of the diocesanwide three-year Spirit Alive! spiritual renewal.

Catholic gestures, annulment, divorce and marriage are all potential topics for questions. A call-in also was conducted last May and drew more than 80 queries on topics including church doctrine, mortal sin, heaven, hell and the Sunday obligation to attend Mass.

I can think of several other "potential topics for questions" not mentioned in the article:

  • The ongoing practice of allowing the non-ordained to preach homilies at Mass.
  • The reasoning behind the appointment of Women's Ordination Conference members to positions of parish leadership.
  • The ongoing invitations to prominent dissidents to speak in DOR.
  • The total failure of Spirit Alive! to stop or even slow down the decline in Mass attendance.
  • The decisions of many local men to take their vocations elsewhere and the effect this has had on our priest "shortage."

Anyone care to extend the list?

Since they weren't prepared to answer these types of questions last time, and said someone would call people back when these types of questions were asked, maybe they will staff the phones with people who can answer them this time?
