QuotationAm reading Ignace Lepp's The Christian Future, which concerns me deeply. I have never had any doubts about my Christian faith or about the Church as the Body of Christ. But the more I see of a certain organizational and social aspect of Christianity, the more I agree with Fr. Lepp. In a certain sense I am scandalized by my own Catholicism.
