Like many Roman Catholics, Gale Holland rejects "a good deal of the dogma" of the church. She is Catholic, however, because she still hopes "to fulfill the ideals of [her] youth and do some good." She also enjoys the "pageantry of the church rites."
This is not what being Catholic means. A Catholic is someone who chooses freely to believe in and to be faithful to the teachings of church dogma. It is from this belief and faith that Catholics are motivated to do good works and to participate in the rites of the church.
Holland appears to have settled for an affection for the church out of nostalgia; I encourage her and others like her to gain an understanding of the theological underpinnings of Catholic dogma. She may very well find herself passionately and irrevocably in love with the church, warts and all.
