It is, after all, the Church of Jesus Christ, and as members we have no authority to dismember it according to our own whims and fancies.
Similarly, when all bishops unite strongly to use the Catholic Catechism as the basis for faith formation in schools and parishes, a faith revival may then begin to occur.
How can our Catholic youth be expected to exercise love based on truth when they are not taught the rule book, or even know the Ten Commandments, e.g., keeping holy the Sabbath Day?
