  • When perfect Christianity can never be enough

    A few weeks ago, I watched a movie on TV called “The Perfect Family.”
    Right away, just by the title, you know they’re not perfect.
    The main character is Eileen, the mother of the family. A devout Catholic, she attends Mass every day, and at confession she confesses every sin she can think of down to her gossipy thoughts.
    She serves communion and delivers food to the homebound. She’s careful to pray before meals and keeps a family altar in her home.
