I found the paragraph below in the bulletin at the local Roman Catholic Church.


Rocks are one way that nature speaks to us in prayer.  The teenagers of our parish have been busy gathering and preparing rocks for the parish during Lent.  Baskets of rocks can be found throughout the church along with explanation sheets about the rocks.  The teens would like to encourage you to take a Lenten Prayer Rock.  Some have pins so you can wearit and others are plain to be carried in your pocket.

Really? I ask with incredulity.

Sorry for my cynicism, but with New Age programs like this, is it any wonder
that the Catholic Church is having a hard time maintaining Her identity?
