Re: “A Catholic High grad returns to 40th reunion as a different person

I have read the catechism of the Catholic Church cover to cover and reference it often. I do not recall reading anything regulating what you wear. Please remember the "rules" of the Church were created by God and they apply to everyone, straight, married, those with same sex attraction, divorced, or cross dressing. We all sin. We all need God's mercy. All are welcome in the Catholic Church; that hasn't changed for 2000 years. When I feel less than welcome it is usually because I have been doing something I shouldn't. That is my problem, not the church's. Confession restores my communion with the Church and is so powerful and awesome. Whatever your issue is, take a chance, ask a Priest, maybe you will find one like Fr. Tribou

Re: “Catholic High vandal turns himself in

A common misunderstanding about Fr. Tribou is that he did not like women. This is just wrong. What he did not care for was young giggling girls. He just did not understand them. I was not a class leader and not a troubled teenager. As such, I did not have much interaction with Fr. Tribou at school. My time with Fr. Tribou was around the dinner table at my house from a very young age to my college years. I learned that Fr. Tribou
did not look at the world the way most people do, but as Christ looks at it. He did whatever he felt was necessary at the moment to lead people back to the straight and narrow. He never considered personal cost or how people might think of him. He could be very tough. He once took a boy who was not doing right and threw him up against the lockers, made threatening gestures at him and told him if he didn't straighten up he would be a loser forever. That "boy" is now a pediatric Orthopedic surgeon. The stories could go on and on....one thing is certain, he would always work to building people up and that is what I love about the current situation, the punishment is going to make this boy a better man and in 25 years his kids are going to howl with laughter at old dad and his gray spray paint story
