Peace be withyou Victor,
[quote:1dmmyf7b]It just made me think that maybe God is preparing us for something. By US I mean the Church but more specifically American Catholics. Could mean nothing but its deffinately interesting in my opinion.
I doubt it preparation, but he does test us to see if our faith and our love is true. Maybe that is it. He [God] is testing the faithful in America. I know that it upsets me to see the difference between the Church here and what is the Church everywhere else. The I read the Canon and see some of these special dispensation granted to the US and other countries for cultural unity or whatever.
The faith should not be compromised for any reason. In my mind it cheapens the faith.
