I'd like to propose a couple of ideas that may seem paradoxical. Every-so-often I'll get into a conversation with people about religion. Be they Catholic or protestant a common comment about Catholicism compared with protestantism is that we're pretty much a like. You got homilies, we got sermons - same difference! But while elements our our liturgies may look similar, there is not a small gap that divides us, but a grand canyon. I'll post about that on Saturday.
Sunday I'd like to propose that while our divisions are real and deep, the theological obstacles that keep people from the Catholic Church might not be an Everest, but more of a mole hill.
