Giving to Ceaser, giving to God
Travel across the nation, sampling Catholic parishes, and you'll see every style imaginable for performing the Mass. Some priests delegate practically everything except the Consecration itself, sitting out even the ministry of Holy Communion. Some make the rounds after the Lord's Prayer, shaking everyone's hand like they're running for president. At some parishes, people hold hands for the Lord's Prayer, and some even change the words.
Sainthood…that title given by the Catholic Church that seems to draw so much criticism from so many denominations. The mere mention of it angers some people. It’s not so much the title itself that draws attention but the dogma that prayer to those saints is helpful to the living. And while opponents of such an idea try to distance themselves from Catholic theology, they miss out on a big benefit of this ‘disagreeable’ doctrine.
