It appears my “I Have the Matter in Hand” post on Monday the 23rd caused as much thought, discussion, and website traffic as any post I’ve put up to date. I think I might pull some more quotes from the individual who gave the “Matter In Hand” quote over the next few weeks and see what people think of his statements. I will continue to keep his name secret for now as I believe if I gave his name it would cause a potentially unhealthy bias towards his comments that don’t necessarily need to be there, but I want to make sure people are aware that the quote from Monday and future quotes, that I will attribute to the “GTM Summer Mystery Catholic”, are not mine. My next Mystery Catholic quote will be on Friday the 27th.
Something I’ve found most interesting is that most Catholic blog readers of my site and especially those who are willing to comment seem to be more on the conservative side of Catholicism or Christianity in general. I’m not exactly sure why that is, but it could just be an example of “birds of a feather, flock together”. I know we shouldn’t use words like liberal and conservative when it comes to Catholicism as “Truth” cannot be describe with such terms but I am a product of my environment and the world likes to label.
“Help me Lord discern Your truth in the world. Help me not to label but to love. Amen”
