Why does our Church not go out and meet these people in the streets and at least try to bring them the Light of Christ? Why does our Church go out of it's way to "bring Catholics home" (which is good and I'm all for) but doesn't have the guts to stand up and proclaim the Truth of Chrsit to non-believers? What has happened to our CHURCH?!

@louella : you may add scientific atheism and the lukewarmness of Catholics ,sins of the fathers and ignorance of the hierarchy to that receipe. With Christian evangelicals meeting in school and public buildings,opening the doors of the church buildings or even bequesting them to fellow Christians instead of selling them to the highest bidder would have been the only proper solution.We -the Church ,generations of Catholics of yesteryear sacrificed,paid tites,build churches to worship the One True God ... and now we are to remain silent and take it in stride as the churches are used as colateral to satisfy sex abuse settlements and payouts just because in some seminaries the faculty members instead of teaching Catholic doctrine were emphesizing the "higher "thought of pagan philosophers and cathering to their own homosexual tendencies encouraging the idea of "the highest expresssion of love being that between pupil and the master" glorified the pagan minds of the Greeks and Romans ? Did it ever occur to them that the hipocracy of the pharisees Jesus was rebuking pales in comparison? ... and they themselves joined the ranks of pagans given to self vain glory and lusts of the flesh ? - those who woved celibacy and were to reveal to others the "mystery" of man being the temple of the Holy Spirit and in whose care the souls,the dwelling places of the Most Holy Trinity were given ? Of such as these Jesus said :" The LORD could no longer bear ,because of the evil of your doings,and because of the abominations which ye have committed;therefore is your land a desolation,and an astonishement,and a curse,without an inhabitant,as at this day.Because ye have burned incense ( Because of their wickedness they have committed to provoke Me to anger,in that they went to burn incense to worship ,and to serve other gods,whom they knew not,neither they,ye,nor your fathers.Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets,rising early and sending them,saying,Oh,do not this abominable thing that I hate.But they hearkened not,nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness,to burn incense to other gods),and because ye have sinned against the LORD,and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD,nor walked in his statues,nor in his testimonies;therefore this evil happened to you,as at this day." - Jeremiah 44. " And now,O ye priests,this commandment is for you:If ye will not hear and if ye will not lay i t to heart to give glory unto My Name,saith the Lord of hosts,I will even send a curse upon you ... Behold I will corrupt your seed and spread dung upon your faces..."Malachi 2
