So often do we hear dissident groups say “The hierarchy needs to listen to the laity.” Well, there is a truth to that, but it isn’t what they think.

Yes, I think our Bishops need to hear the voice of the faithful, just not the group that calls itself such. They need to figure out why we aren’t singing at Mass. They can use our views on negotiable things. They need to take us seriously when we report problems, be it in matters of doctrine or in our Sacred Liturgy.

However, they cannot and should not try to compromise the Church’s teaching. They should listen to what we believe, but only so that they can teach us the true teaching. Such needs to be explained to us so that we might know and love the truth. To do this, they have to listen.
