Question from jim on 10/17/2001:

Hello Dr. Carroll,

I just wanted to clarify something which I think you misunderstood from my orevious post. I do not deplore those items I mention. Rather that we're getting caught up to much in disciplines which change. I am all for reverence. But that must come from within ones self, it's an attitude people must have. And while these various disciplines are there to help this come about they will not make it happen. Only we can make it happen by understanding where we are and whose presence we're in. Any time I walk into a church, no matter how beautiful or nect to nothing plain or whether the Blessed Sacrament is on the altar or in a chapel, I feel the presence of God in that place. It's has nothing to do with the its physical looks. Beautiful art is wonderful but so is beautiful simplicity. I hope this makes sense because it is so hard to frame these thoughts in the written word. Peace

Thank you for the clarification. - Dr. Carroll
