The UK seems on the whole to be a Catechism-Free-Zone. We need to teach the faith so that we can live the faith.
I have spoken to those who take the children for 'liturgy' who admit they don't know the faith.
I watch people struggle to be good Catholics with hardly any knowledge or support.
As you are seeing from my own journey into the fullness of the faith I was left floundering for years and given erroneous information by priests-let alone fellow laity.
In the USA they have EWTN and from there has grown a number of radio stations and programmes that feed the faithful and teach them the Truth. They cover the spiritual war as well as just teaching the faith. They discuss Pro-Life not just as an 'issue' bit as an active campaign that has borne good fruits.
They help Catholics fight against the pro-death culture in politics.
They are fighting for the rights of the Christians in Iraq.
we have nothing here that even touches on those resources. We need to start something.
Small talks in churches; my dream of a Family Festival every year that gives families the chance to get together and learn and live the faith; radio station for the UK that reaches out to us about the faith HERE in the UK-about our churches, our pro-life campaigns, our education system and so on.
Of course we need to undo a lot of damage done by the Weaving the Web and Icons teachings in schools.
I would love to do some of this. I must remind Father of my offer...
