The problem is not lack of effort on the part of the church. The essence and meaning of holy qurbana including the underlying message of each ritual is taught in sunday school. If it is not learned at that level the problem lies with the parents.However the church can still make an effort in teaching these basics at other fora. There are many books published,including the works of Kaniamparambil achan, which enlighten one on holy qurbana.There is no point in criticizing the priests alone for giving messages based on gospel. If you are interested in a subject,there are so many ways of learning it rather than expect some else to spoon feed you.
