I wrote Light Reading for Good and Wayward Catholic to to express a few things which concern me about Catholicism. The overall theme of the book is to remind us Catholics to enjoy our religion. I have little admiration for my solemn fellow church-goers who have a “I’m holier than thou” look on their faces. I worry about the lack of community within the Church. For example, 94% of church attendees demonstrate they think each person is private islands with a “Keep Off!” sign on the beach. I have special concern about the watering down of the value of the Eucharist Sacrament. Once a very solemn and respected part of the Mass, it is now treated as a side dish, included at no cost in the Mass agenda.
The Purpose of the Joyful Catholic is to remind us each day to enjoy our faith and invite others to the feast.
