I’m so excited to be part of this blog!!!!!
I spent all weekend thinking about what to post on, and during church on Sunday an idea came to me.
Our Protestant brothers and sisters are so blessed to be able to sit through such amazing preaching on Sundays; wouldn’t it help to draw them into the church if we offered more great preaching ourselves?
Then it dawned on me that if we had the priest consecrate the bread during the week we wouldn’t have to sit/stand/kneel through it on the weekend. Of course we would all go to communion like we do now and receive the bread that was consecrated during the week (so it's not like we aren't getting communion), but that way the priest could spend more time preaching and we would have more time for praise and worship during the service!
Can you imagine how the Holy Spirit could work through this and draw us all together as one church?
One thing the catholic church today is lacking is the ability to be relevant in a non-catholic culture.
