We received the following "Burning Question" from a regular reader, Laurence Gonzaga. He is someone whom we respect and this question of his is quite challenging. It is therefore good for all of us to toss it around in our minds.
This www.ParishWorld.net blog is a compilation of questions posted weekly by Paul Dion, STL, that are designed to make you think about your Catholic faith as it relates to your personal convictions. We hope you find the articles interesting, challenging and relevant. We encourage you to respond to the questions. All responses will be posted so all may learn from our common thoughts.
