If you read my book, “YES WE ARE! The Living Body of Christ” you may remember this story of departure from the Catholic Church. Peter was the youngest of five. His very devote parents moved to another state and he was the only one to accompany them. They enrolled him in a Catholic high school with an excellent curriculum in contemporary theology. With good will his teachers unintentionally left him with guilt feelings. He left high school convinced he could never do enough to correct the wrongs of the world. Eventually he left our household of faith.
