We all know folks who’ll say they were “raised Catholic” — but more often that not, that means their view of the Church is strictly in the rear-view mirror. Catholicism isn’t an ethnicity encoded in your DNA, nor is it a club that you pay admittance to and become a lifetime member in good standing, even if you never show up for a meeting.
Being a Catholic means believing Catholic dogma and doing Catholic things. It’s not a condition or a situation, it’s an ongoing process — one that can be rebooted at any time.
Have a look.
