2. “We must resist the temptation of usurping individual freedom. Every person has his or her own time, their path, and we must accompany this journey. Moral or spiritual progress which manipulates a person’s immaturity is only an apparent success, and is destined to fall. The Lord is patient with us.”
3. “One other consideration we must never forget is that the most precious good, the seal of the Holy Spirit is communion…….If the world sees divisions, rivalries, backbiting, the terrorism of gossip, please… if these things are seen regardless of the cause, how can we evangelize?” He reminds us that real communion cannot exist unless these movements are integrated with the greater communion of our Holy Mother, the Hierarchical Church. He says further, “when the Church takes up the task of evangelization, she is simply pointing to the source of personal fulfillment” (Enagelii Gaudium). Perhaps it might be well to read the whole document, not as a criticism of our present activities, but rather as an encouragement to continue with efforts to bring others not only to our encounter and LSS weekends, but to a deeper relationship with the Lord Jesus.
