These people are going to look after you when you are old…

doorMy students could not grip the fact that you can be a Christian but not a Catholic, but if you are a Catholic you are automatically a Christian by association.

No, it is not that they are devote Catholics and can not imagine any other world view. In fact, most of them follow no religion, though at a Catholic school.

I explained that to be a Christian one just had to believe in a Christian God; one could be a Protestant for example, or not follow any particular creed, but believe in God. To be a Catholic meant that you automatically believed in a Christian God.

It was too abstract for their low level of comprehension.

I went home and drank tonight. Not because they don’t follow a religion, it is just how far behind they are and how resistant they are to any assistance to progress them.

Not sure if it is time for me to surrender and move on, or not.

Fill it up, Sam.
