Apocalypse? Now?

Something has been nagging away at me, all the more so this week as Cardinals have started to speak out against the Church's teaching on abortion.

The answer to what it was is a recent post by Rita which has been busily fermenting in my subconscious as I try to get my mind around it. She looks at the message about the state of the seven Churches that God dictates to St John at the start of the Apocalypse, compares it to the state of the Catholic Church today, and suggests that as sinners, each of us shares a degree of responsibility for what is happening, and that this passage might help us pray and concentrate on what we ought to be doing.

Give it a go.
