April 28, 2016 (Acts 15:7-21)

Do gentiles need to be circumcised? The answer reached is “no.” Circumcision is just accidental to faith. In our own day, there is plenty of room in Catholicism for diversity. What do I mean? Well, one can be a good Catholic and not pray the rosary daily, not make the Stations of the Cross, not be a “Fisher of Men,” not be a K of C. All those things are good but they are incidental to the basic tenets of the creed. We can have unity in the essentials and still have diversity in the incidentals.
