Prayer from an Agnostic Catholic

| 7/27/2009 12:48:49 PM

“My church doesn’t want me,” Eileen Markey writes for Killing the Buddha. “It is a profoundly lonely feeling.” Catholicism can offer absolute answers and a moralistic certainty that Markey cannot accept. At the same time, she can’t reject her sincere belief and faith in the church she grew up in. “How does one explain belief in something so absurd?” she wonders. “I can’t. I just believe.”
