ARE YOU AN INDIFFERENT CATHOLIC?
By Domald F. Miller, C.SS.R.

God Himself has warned the indifferent of this terrible danger in the words of the Apocalypse, 3: 15-16: “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot. I would that thou wert cold or hot. But because thou art lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth.”
The inference seems to be plain, that God finds it easier to convert and save the outright sinner, the “cold” heart, than the person who has drifted into lukewarmness and indifference. Experience backs up this inference; so often it requires greater graces and more extraordinary measures to prod the indifferent into fervor than to convert great sinners. There is a kind of self-satisfaction that goes with indifference; a resistance to warnings and a rejection of graces; a slipping and sliding backward that can suddenly end in eternal tragedy.
The second reason for the importance of the question, “‘are you an indifferent Catholic?” is the harm that is done to other souls by indifferent and lax Catholics. There are vast numbers of indifferent Catholics. They make religion seem like a side issue in life or a thin veneer on their characters, easily scuffed up and cracked and worn through. They easily win others to their mode of living because the world is on their side. Where the world cannot destroy religion in the heart of a man, it is content to see it becoming a minor and unimportant matter for those who profess it at all. Indifference in religion is wonder-fully compatible with secularism, the disease that makes a person think much more of this life than the next.
Indifferent Catholics are not always such solely through their own fault. Indifferent Catholic parents are usually respon-sible for the indifference of their children. Such parents often add to their accounta-bility by depriving their children of a Catholic schooling, or, where none such is available, of the equivalent in sound Catholic training and instruction.
But whether, as a Catholic reading these lines, you have been thrust into indif-ference through the neglect and bad example of others, or whether you have drifted into indifference through your own
fault and your excessive love of the world, it is important that you recognize your state and do something about it now. To help you recognize it, the ten signs or marks of the indifferent Catholic are here presented for your self-examination.
III. Ten Signs of the Indifferent Catholic
1. You receive the sacraments of penance and Holy Communion only once or twice or a few times a year.
The fervent Catholic knows that these two great sacraments are his first and most important means of defense against sin, and more than that, his certain means of positive union with God through grace. He knows that one of the greatest popes, Saint Pius X, told the whole Catholic world that it is the desire of Christ and the will of the Church and the need of the faithful that all should receive Holy Communion often and even daily if pos-sible. He tries to live by that clear manifestation of the will of God.
If you are an indifferent Catholic, you never get around to more than one or two confessions a year, nor to any more fre-quent Communions. If pressed for the reasons for your neglect, you say: “I don’t have time to do any more,’ or, “I don’t see any need for doing any more, or, “I just don’t like to go to confession,” (as if anybody did!), or, “I always intend to do better but I just don’t.” Thus you put your indifference into words.
2. You express disfavor and disapproval of those who do receive the sacraments often.
Not every indifferent Catholic criticizes those who are more fervent than he is, but more often than not such criticisms are the self-defense of the indifferent. Mark your-self as indifferent if you catch
yourself saying often: “Too many hypocrites receive Communion every Sunday or every day,” or, “Frequent Communion is just for pious old women,” or, . . . .

 

WORD OF INTRODUCTION

Requirements for Receiving Holy Communion
On January 12, 1930, the sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, has issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops, directing them to insist on these prescriptions:

"We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper."


In addition, all those who wish to receive  Holy Communion at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church must:    

● be validly baptized in the Roman Catholic Church.  Anyone who was baptized after 1970 must speak with the priest before receiving Holy Communion.
● hold all teachings and have a sufficient knowledge of the Catholic Faith.  One must believe and abide by traditional Catholic moral teaching, especially regarding purity of marriage.  Anyone who has received a marriage annulment since 1968 must talk to the priest before receiving Holy Communion.
● be in state of sanctifying grace to be able to receive Communion, having made a good confession to a traditional Roman Catholic priest.
● be fasting for three hours from solid food and alcoholic beverages and one hour from liquids other than water.  Water and non alcoholic medicines may be taken at any time.  (please note) Those who are able to do so, are encouraged to fast from midnight at those times when they plan to assist at a Mass scheduled for the morning.
Anyone who adheres to the teachings of Father Leonard Feeney and Saint Benedict Center (denying the Church’s teaching concerning “baptism of desire” and “baptism of blood”), who worships at religious services conducted by any of the CMRI bishops or clergy or Thuc bishops and clergy in concert with them, must not receive Holy Communion at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church.

Ladies, as stated above, are required to wear dresses, or full skirts and blouses.  Hemlines must be long enough to touch the floor when kneeling. Necklines must be no more than two fingers-widths below the pit of the throat.  Slit skirts are not acceptable; a skirt is too tight if it needs to be slit to allow walking. Ladies are also required to wear a suitable head-covering while in church. Obviously, by the standards given by Pius XI, the wearing slacks, sleeveless dresses including “cap” sleeves(which are not sleeves at all), or low necklines are not suitably dress. Sleeves must cover the arms at least to the elbows.

Gentlemen also must wear modest and decent clothing in church and observe the prescript of Pope Pius XI as noted above.  Men must wear dress slacks and dress shirt, with sleeves which cover the arms at least to the elbows, preferably with suit coat  and tie.  If their attire is immodest or indecent, they should not enter the church.
Flip-flops, shorts, sweats and T-shirts are not acceptable attire in the church at any time. The wearing of revealing, tight-fitting and transparent garments of sheer material is forbidden in the Church.

Please do not come to receive Holy Communion at this church today if you do not meet these requirements. Rather, respect our standards and observe them.

1. The question is, what exactly does it mean, to dress modestly?
2. What does the Catholic Church say on the matter?

On January 12, 1930, the sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, has issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops, directing them to insist on these prescriptions:
"We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper.

Women must be decently dressed, especially when they go to church. The parish priest may, with due prudence, refuse them entrance to the church and access to the reception of the Sacraments, [each] and every time that they come to church immodestly dressed." (General Pastoral Directive, 1915 A.D.)

"Girls and women dressed immodestly are to be debarred from Holy Communion and from acting as sponsors at the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation; further, if the offense be extreme, they may even be forbidden to enter the church." [Decree of the Congregation of the Council, 1930 A.D.]
