With continued lost of Real Presence in the faithful.... the more focus will be on performance and entertainment more applause and more on the people than on God. The Churches are turning into concert halls, meeting places the community and catch-ups and even a place to purchase coffee during Mass?
Perhaps we should remind ourselves what had happen perviously in the temple of God...
"And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the chairs of them that sold doves: And he saith to them: It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves." ~ Matthew 21:12-13
Al: Catholic, learning and thankful.
