What does it mean to be TOO Catholic??

Are you TOO Catholic if you want to lead a group of mothers (not all are Catholic) at a Catholic parish function in the Hail Mary?

Are you TOO Catholic if you make decisions on a daily basis based on being a Catholic?

Are you TOO Catholic if you think about God and Jesus every day and being a Catholic?

Are you TOO Catholic if you consider yourself a FAN of the Pope and follow him in the news.

Are you TOO Catholic if you buy Catholic books, read Catholic books, and attend only Catholic studies?

Are you TOO Catholic if you think Catholic hospitals and health care facilities should have a strong identity?

Are you TOO Catholic if you think Catholic schools and universities should have strong Catholic leadership?

Are you TOO Catholic if you think all Catholic schools should teach with materials true to the Magisterium?

Interesting how the bad (or lazy) take a virtue and make it a vice.

The important thing, of course, is not having a bunch of Catholic "stuff" (especially T-shirts or other odds and ends), but that you are faithful in your Catholic worship, service, and obedience. Crucifixes in every room do not a good Catholic make!

Our problem today seems to be that most Catholics aren't Catholic enough! (Perhaps I need improvement in this area too...)

I probably Am too Catholic, too... But some people really get too much carried away with their faith. They do crazy things and that's why the community is so predjudiced agains those who have faith... There is a thin line between being too Catholic and bein a bigot. And we definitely shouldn't cross it.
