“Ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Luke 11:9
Read ‘The Confessional is a Place of Victory’ by Fr. Mike Schmitz.
It may be difficult to tell a non-practicing Catholic that he or she can’t receive Communion, but—as Fr. Mike Schmitz proves in this video—in the big picture, you would actually be helping the person. While telling an awe-inspiring story about a seminarian, Fr. Mike lays out what it means to be a practicing Catholic and shows how the requirements can transform a person’s life.
