CWN Editor's Note: “Once the Catholic Church functioned as a bishop-priest centered church and did only what the bishop or the priest would say,” said Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith of Colombo (Sri Lanka). “Today, we no longer need such sacristy Catholics. We need a laity who are ready to get down to the streets and fight for justice and do what is right for society. The Church needs Christians who will commit themselves for Christ and follow his example. We do not need spoon-fed babies.”
