A Christian is not 'belonging' to some group or church. It's not how many times you have gone to mass, or prayed. It isn't about following lent customs or attending processions. These things are important too. But in my way of thinking, a Christian can be anyone who cares what happens to other people. If a person lives a 'good' life then one can say that he or she is a Christian. Going to church or receiving communion doesn't entitle anyone to anything. So what happens to those who never had the opportunity or chance to learn about Christ; or those who because of the culture they have been born into, is difficult for them to get to know or recognise and understand a 'Christian's' beliefs? Do they remain on the outside? I don't think so. To be a Christian is to respect and tolerate differences of others; help people in need; give without expecting something back; loving others as one loves oneself. All this makes a person 'Christian', apart from mass, praying, receiving communion. It's all written in the Bible, just take a look.
