Power of suggestion is great


No doubt, by now, readers of The Catholic Messenger are fed up with remembering Father Richard McBrien’s column concerning eucharistic adoration.

Some say his comments about eucharistic adoration as a step backwards expressed an opinion. No! His words are a suggestion. The power of suggestion is great.

Now I know why my son, educated in liberal Catholic schools and colleges, is no longer a practicing Catholic. Mom is not an educated college professor, you see, so why listen to her?
