    Thank you for this.

    I’m so tired of this Catholic guilt “trip”. I do think though I’ve had a wonderful upbringing I the Church and domknow many who had very upsetting experiences with the Church.

    It seems to me the problem is more about where you grew up and what kind of parish and priests you were exposed to than a failure of the Catholic faith.

    I used to wonder why we had so many different experiences growing up with different places we would attend Mass. It wasn’t until my very early teens we really settled on going to out local parish. I now think it’s because my parents took us places that we very pro Vatican 2 with liberal faith communities.

    There are churches I go to today that I feel very uncomfortable on and won’t go back to. That’s really not how it should be but I know there are many who share my feelings.

    “Excessive guilt is an indication of depression…” I wish someone had told me that fifty years ago. Might have saved a lot of grief in my life.
