From Where I Sit

In today's homily, Monsignor Ribble talked about how the second largest group of Christians in the U.S. are former Catholics. He said it pained him to see people lose their faith. But the part I found most interesting was that he said that former Catholics refuse to admit they might be wrong. The question for the priest that came to my mind: Can you admit that you might be wrong? It seems that when it comes to matters of faith there is no room for reason. When you are among the faithful, regardless of religion, you are right. If you are not of the faith, then you cannot admit you are wrong. I'll go out on a limb here. I am willing to admit I'm wrong. But it's a decision I make for myself and I'm okay with that.
