We're here as Catholics trying to help one another to get through this world. Nobody here thought this idea up and put it out there in the thread; I'm sure it's hard for everyone.
How do you reconcile your opinion with the Church's teaching on the subject?
I am not going to write much on this topic. Probably this is it. I just don't think that the issue is important enough to approach.
How do I reconcile my opinion with the church? I stated that I did not even open Bernard's hyperlink. Although I do attend a TLM and prefer it, the conservative Catholic slant of the mass is not the reason for preferring that mass. I am conservative, but that is politically.
It is my understanding that if one is ignorant of a particular Catholic thought, one cannot be responsible for behavior that is contrary to that thought. For example, think of all of the persons who have never been baptized, and know nothing of our faith. Are they necessarily left out of heaven due to their behavior done out of ignorance? No.
One is only fully responsible for sins committed with full knowledge of the faith, yet go against it anyway.
We are called to instruct each other regarding the faith, and help each other to avoid sin, but I believe that we are only required to obey an authorized Catholic source.
