Q&A

Doesn’t being Catholic mean that one should accept the Church’s teachings without publicly disagreeing?

Question:

On television I heard a woman state that she believes women should be priests, and that she was upset when she read the latest encyclical Pope John Paul issued about how Catholics cannot receive communion in a non-Catholic church. As a revert Catholic, I thought when you become Catholic you accept the Church&#039;s teachings without open disagreement. Am I alone in this thinking?<br />
