Awesome Quote

Julie has lots of them! Today’s quote at Happy Catholic is via the Clueless Christian.

One of the advantages of being Roman Catholic is that one is spared the burden of being one’s own pope. Had I still been an Anglican, I would have been forced to agonize over Scripture, Tradition, and Scientific evidence until I came to some understanding as to what moral position I should hold, and after a great deal of careful reading and honest reflection would likely have gotten it wrong anyway. Being a Catholic however, I am both permitted and expected to assume that the position of the Church, (incredible and unfair though it might appear) is actually the correct one, and simply work backward. It is like having an Algebra textbook with the answers in the back. One still needs to do one’s homework if one is ever expected to get on in math; however if you know how the equation is supposed to end, it is easier to work out the solution.

Too true! Really, God didn’t want it to be so HARD for us! That’s why he’s always given us someone to point us in the right direction.
