Spinoff on Holy Days

there's a reason Fr. Corapi is so popular among many who attend the NO, although of course some want 'kumbaya' and he ain't singing it.  he gave a lecture or two at our archdiocese's Eucharistic Congress a couple of years ago, an event which in itself is proof many people want more of old-time Catholicism, even if they can't attend a TLM or just aren't ready to do so.  attendance at the Eucharistic Congress has grown by leaps and bounds since it began.  until they started this one, the last Eucharistic Congress i knew of was in the Fifties.

i understand what Credo is saying but think that 'complexes among the faithful' are caused by scruples, not by high expectations the Church makes of Catholics.  

everyone should know that we are excused from Mass obligations under various conditions beyond our control, and excused from fasting if we are ill.  we may also be excused from abstinence if a priest gives us a dispensation.   if we ignore our obligations, we should feel guilt and confess the sin, knowing we are forgiven and striving to do better in the future.  if we become guilt-ridden, despite having confessed and striving to do better, we have scruples, and need the advice of a priest.
