"whatever the church teaches"

"The Bible ignorance in that crowd was astounding me as well. Most of them don't seem to read their Bible, they just follow what 'the church' teaches them." CB

Today was the amazing first liturgy of Holy Week. The priest, deacon and members of the congregation entered the church while the choir and the instruments played Hosanna, Hosanna, Hosanna in the highest!

Then three very rich bible readings were read aloud, with the gospel reading actually being read in parts by the priest, narrator and the lecter with the congregation speaking a few lines as well. The full text of those readings can be found at the
USCCB - (NAB) - for March 16, 2008.

After these readings and Holy Communion the priest, deacon and the assembly left the church in solemn silence as a prelude to the holy events we will commemorate during this coming Holy Week.

This is what 'the church' taught 'them' this week.

Hi Elena! I was wondering if any of you were planning on doing a post on the Emergent Church movement being compared to Catholicism. I have never heard of this comparison before because the two seemed to be on such opposite ends of the spectrum, but apparently it exists. Thanks!!
