1950Brutus - Study finds reasons Springfield Diocese Catholics have left the Church - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJou
I share many of the experiences described here by others – for me though the crossroad was when the church changed the definition of a “mortal sin”.

She was probably behind a car and started forward and ran into it. Ergo improper starting. Not one you see very often at all.
