Do take a quiet moment to read the newest contribution, "The Role of the Laity in the Church," on SavingOurParish.com. Here's a bit:
Why are the people of God not being listened to? Why is the Holy Spirit, speaking through us, being ignored? Why are ancient as well as current teachings of the Church failing to be lived by our parish leaders? Do they ascribe to a neo-Gnosticism that only they, the leaders, have special knowledge of the Holy Spirit? How come we, the faithful, are not listened to by our parish leaders?
For background on Lumen Gentium, one of the principle documents of the Second Vatican Council that is referenced in the new article, go here.
