My friend, John, was talking and he was serious. He had been a member of our church for years. He was over 80 years old and still of sound body and mind. But not of spirit. I had asked him why he did not leave the Catholic church and become an official member of our church.
“No, no, I can’t leave the Catholic Church. I would be excommunicated,” he insisted.
