Unlike Coffee, There is no such thing as an Instant Catholic

Unlike coffee, there is no such thing as an instant Catholic. It takes time to make a Catholic.  We do not become Catholic overnight. A human being develops from a baby in the womb through other stages of life including infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age. A similar framework of development takes place in the thinking of Catholics. A Catholic whose thinking is not quite up to speed with the thinking of the self-styled orthodox Catholics is still a Catholic for the same reason that a baby in the womb is still a human being.

The mind's direction is more important than its progress." Joseph Joubert

The test of a Catholic is movement not belief. A Catholic moves from the sourness of godlessness to the sweetness of paradise on the Catholic escape route. We are Catholic first with our feet and then with our heads. God built an escape route from godlessness to paradise, defined the escape route with holy places, made a map of them, established a Church, entrusted the map to the Church, and gave the Church the job of facilitating our escape - not the job of frustrating it, filtering it or fouling it up. The escape from godlessness to paradise is primary. Nothing else matters. Everything else is secondary. Anything that interferes is suspect.
