Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

In addition, the Bishops are hoping to reintroduce the Sunday obligation on the First Sunday of Advent.

. . . the Bishops are hoping to reintroduce the Sunday obligation on the First Sunday of Advent.
I had rather hoped that this mediaeval approach might be allowed to fade quietly away. I have never really understood why those who believe themselves to have been granted the keys to the kingdom of heaven by The One who came to earth and lived and died to ensure that all human kind might pass through those gates should choose to use the power thus granted to erect hurdles to divert them instead to eternal damnation - or indeed why they would expect to enjoy the approval of That Same One for so doing.

Just wondering.
