Update: the Vatican survey

As mentioned before, the Vatican has sent out a worldwide questionnaire or survey for lay people (Vatican seeks input from the pews on marriage and family issues - David Gibson). In other countries (like the UK), the bishops are allowing people to answer the surveys but in the US, apparently only the bishops will fill out the surveys. But good news - Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good has figured out a way for US Catholics to fill out the questionnaire and let the Vatican know how we feel. Here's the post at their blog with a link to the online survey ...

Pope Francis wants to hear your opinion

[...] In preparation for Pope Francis’ 2014 Synod on the Family, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good has created a survey for American Catholics on the state of life within the Church.

Do you have a few minutes to answer some questions? Your responses will be forwarded to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and to the appropriate officials in the Vatican, including the Holy Father himself.

When you’re done, send the survey to a few friends. Let’s get as many people’s opinions as possible.

Pope Francis has made it clear: you are a valued member of the Church. As such, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good promises to do all we can to make sure your voice is heard.

Thanks Crystal. What a good idea. These seem like questions seeking truth not just validation. Hope you are enjoying a beautiful fall day :)

I wish the survey asked more detailed questions - it sounds like the British version is much more substantive. Still, it's so neat that we actually do get to give our opinions and that the pope probably will read some of them.

It is a nice day! Thank you, global warming ;)

Crystal, it is great that you and I for years have been able to agree to disagree on well let's just called them more detailed questions if you get my drift? :)

Last night I was not able to sleep and around 3 or 4 in the morning found myself looking at “The Nature of Things with David Suzuki” talking about pair of sights, "I" mean "Parasites" http://www.cbc.ca/natureofthings/episodes/invasion-of-the-body-snatchers

and I started thinking that if this stuff is true then why not all the alien movies that you talk about.

As far as marriage is concerned I've posted at http://www.ncregister.com/blog/jimmy-akin/is-pope-francis-going-to-let-the-divorced-and-remarried-receive-communion
so you might say that I am trying to stay a little bit on top of "IT".

I could go off topic and start talking about http://ncronline.org/news/people/childrens-book-celebrates-peace-diplomats-life

and http://ashesfromburntroses.blogspot.ca/2013/11/faith-filled-friday-all-souls-day-with.html

but instead I'll simply thank GOD for Loving all of us and leave "IT" at that. :)

God Bless Peace
