Catholic Church remains strong despite problems

Catholics gather at the MECU Pavilion for the Silence Stops Now conference and rally near the hotel where the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is meeting. They are calling for the end to the silence around clerical sexual abuse. (Kim Hairston, Baltimore Sun video)

I'm usually in agreement with what Dan Rodricks has to say, but not this time ("Another crushing blow to the faithful,” Nov. 14). Despite his negative predictions about the future of the Catholic Church, I continue to witness multitudes in line for communion. In fact, I recently attended Mass in three very different Maryland locations — Ocean City, northern Baltimore County and southeastern Baltimore County — all of which were packed with the faithful. It's obvious to me that as long as the Catholic Church continues to feed us through the miracle of transubstantiation, it is not going anywhere.

No amount of human sinfulness will ever keep us away from partaking of Him. It seems to me that we can never get enough of Jesus, our Lord. This is an open invitation. Come see for yourself why we keep coming back for more.
