In response to:

The Church Doesn't Need a Revolution far as the Sunday worship thing, Me as a Catholic accept it as putting forth some effort (exercise) into our faith. What we end up getting is benefit towards our understanding. Don't put forth the effort, you wither in atrophy.

The pope has renounced the papal throne. Long live the progressive pope! Such are the rallying cries from establishment voices wanting to see the Catholic Church loosen up now that Pope Benedict XVI has decided to step down. But maybe people should listen to the Church's actual views.

Mary Hasson from the Ethics and Public Policy Center has been doing some unique work looking into what Catholic women know and want from their Church. It's scandalous and yet not entirely surprising that she found only 13 percent of Catholic women who occasionally attend Mass accept Church teaching on contraception.

It's not a shock...
