Catholicism Isn't Great...

You know, I don't do this very often, but once in a while I read something on another blog that is just so... I don't know. What I would say if I was as good a writer as this person or something like that.
Anyhow, this guy is my new favorite blogger, and is worth the link, to say the least. He claims to be 18 years old, which I really find hard to believe, and I am eagerly looking forward to the scandalous moment when he is unmasked and his true 50-something identity exposed to the world.
Here is a small snippet of a recent post:
The Cross is not an event that took place at one time, at one place in the world. The cross is a spear plunged by God into the void, and the world swells and exists around it.
The life of the Blessed Virgin Mary – the Immaculate Conception – was not merely a remarkable life compared to the human beings around her. The life of Our Lady was the life humanity was made for. The Thing Itself.
The Sacraments of the Church – Communion, Confession and the like – are not mere supplements to life, as one might be supplemented by drugs, literature, friendship, or romance. No, the Sacraments are the Thing that all supplements imitate – from heroin to meditation, adventure to friendship. The Sacraments are 7 rocks flung with violence into the muddy water of things-that-make-life-worth-living. All else is ripple...
Catholicism isn’t great; Catholicism is.
 Read the rest of it - this is just a taste!
