Collect

Prayer of the Congregants at the Penitential Rite

Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, maker of all things, judge of all men: we acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, which we, from time to time, have most grievously committed, by thought, word, and deed, against thy divine majesty, provoking most justly thy wrath and indignation against us. We do earnestly repent, and are heartily sorry for these our misdoings: the remembrance of them is grievous unto us, the burden of them is intolerable. Have mercy, have mercy upon us, most merciful Father; for thy son our Lord Jesus Christ's sake, forgive us all that is past; and grant that we may ever hereafter serve and please thee in newness of life, to the honor and glory of thy name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Music: Florence + the Machine, and Some Other Stuff

I've been getting traffic from some new places since Crisis published my column, so if you're new to Mudblood Catholic, welcome! To get an idea of the place, I recommend any or all of these posts (or you can root through the Warning Labels to your right):

Raw Tact, Part V: Shrieking the Truth in Love, about the problems with some of the ways we as Christians habitually talk to gay-identified people.

An Appendix to Raw Tact, my most-read post, discussing a Catholic view of what homophobia is (and whether it exists in the first place).

Why Not Ex-Gay?, Part II and Part III, discussing the reasons I've taken a gay Catholic approach rather than seeking reparative therapy through NARTH or some such.

And Mudblood Catholic, Mark II, the point at which I kind of reinvented the blog, and in doing so summarized what I chiefly want to do here.

Finally, though it has nothing to do with the above, this song is amazing (and it always makes me think of God):
