Catechising Communists

Having just put up the post below I had a quick look at the Hermeneutic of Continuity and found this Don Camillo video.

This is putting the faith into practice, it teaches the centrality and power of the Cross, it says something about the nature of the Church, of Christ's continuing involvement in the world, in the village. It evokes and rekindles faith from those whose faith has grown lukewarm.

Would that more priests had half the courage shown in this video! It's definitely a reminder to us that we need to proclaim the faith boldly, even if it upsets the people in the parish or the government.

Of course, it also would be nice to be able to have direct conversations with Our Lord. I guess I need to work on my holiness and humility for that to happen.
