WHEN Archbishop Diarmuid Martin has a cut at us a la carte Catholics or "social sacramentrians", my instinctive response is that the Catholic Church should feel bloody lucky to have us in any shape or form.

That revelation followed the comments from Dr Martin concerning those parents who only turn up at the altar for the "celebratory sacraments".
