Why Become A Catechumen?

Dear Fr. Gregory,

We are all in your debt for this profoundly moving post, which seems to me to express the spirit of our faith so well.

We have all fallen short, and we all sin; but we can all be saved. How much better it is to ask serious question, hesitate, and even pull back, than it is to go forward in uncertainty; I think Mark's courage is to be commended, if I might venture so to say.

If it be His will, then Mark will find the way that is best for him; he needs to continue to show the humility and energy he has throughout his time here; and those of us who are praying that His will be done, need to keep on doing that - and to understand his sincerity.

Fr. Gregory, you post breathes the spirit we all need; thank you for it.

In Christ,

John

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)
