At The Catholic Herald we want our articles to provoke spirited and lively debate. We also want to ensure the discussions hosted on our website are carried out in civil terms.
All commenters are therefore politely asked to ensure that their posts respond directly to points raised in the particular article or by fellow contributors, and that all responses are respectful.
When the youth gather there should be a printed guide on how to celebrate the sacrament along with a realistic examination of conscience. So often this is lacking. Too often the entire sacrament in such cases is simply based on emotion! This is not being realistic. I fear in too many cases today too many of our young people do not know how to examine their conscience or even know what to say when they celebrate the sacrament.
