Why does it take Catholic ministries hundreds of words to answer simple questions. Recently I asked a number of Catholic ministries a simple question. Is missing mass on Sunday intentionally without sufficient reason still a mortal sin like I learned it was when I was a Catholic many years ago.
The answers I got were couched in hundreds of words leaving it in a cloud of verbosity. I ask another way, how would you answer that question when asked by a grade school child? My parents, nuns and priests answered me in one word, yes!
