Rules...

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is everything in our lives, and I want it to be celebrated in a manner that shows that it's not about my being here, and about what I like. But in a way which glorifies God to the best of our abilities. The Christ "welcome to all" never said "Do whatever feels right!!!!" No, he gave us rules. Best of all, he gave us the church, who now gives us rules which I am happy to follow in obedience. Not only the church's teachings, but also her liturgy, which forms my conscience and my being. That's important- I don't form my being and my conscience, the CHURCH and her TEACHINGS do. Yet people still decide and think that they can pick and choose at the rules laid down by Christ and do not fully commit themselves to the church.
