Have you tried typing the lyrics you do remember into Google?
Many, many, many times. I may have actually gone a bit insane & even went through my school's council archives (at least the bit that's availble online), since there were mentions of the school plays in one Google finding.

It's like they never existed outside the school, which also can't be true since the tape they played every year to teach you the songs was kids from a different school.

I think being off work has left me with too much time on my hands & made me a bit obsessed Sorry for the inane rambling, just needed to vent & this seemed like the least ridiculous place to do it given the subject matter. I'll go back to lurking now :lurk:

For some reason I've got the songs from my primary school's Easter play stuck in my head, but despite my best efforts I can't find them online.

Only being able to remember half the lyrics to songs drives me absolutely mad :mad2:
Perhaps Someone is trying to tell you something

Don't lurk! It's not insane rambling! We had a rich singing tradition at my primary school and that is something that has stayed with me and that I thank God for

I know I've already posted about it but I'm honestly amazed by the wealth of spiritual material that is free on iTunes. Listening to an interesting radio interview about contemplative prayer. I've got a good feeling I can learn a lot :yep:

OK, a question to everyone:

When doing the rosary, do you say an Our Father followed by 10 Haily Marys, or do you say 10 Hail Marys followed by an Our Father (and obviously the Glory Be and 'O my Jesus')? I ask because Sinhala Catholics do it the latter way but a sheet I have been using to memorise the Hail Holy Queen prayer says you start with the Our Father :dontknow:

If you're agnostic, may I kindly ask you to refrain from posting in here. This is for believing/practising Catholics to talk to each other without interference or abuse from others :yes:

But my original question is directly linked to your request above. If I am an enthusiastic member- baptised and confirmed- of the Catholic Church but I don't believe explicitly in any kind of christian or indeed Abrahamic God. Am I no longer, in any conceivable way a Catholic? Or if I am, what kind of Catholic am I?


Hmmm.... I may broach this subject with Christopher Hill.

If you're baptised a Catholic you're technically always a Catholic even if you lose faith or are excommunicated. However being a practising Catholic does require a belief in the Christian or Abrahamic God. So I guess that does put you in the agnostic camp, even if you're baptised and confirmed.

Look at the creed:

"We believe in one God
The Father Almighty
Creator of Heaven and earth
Of all that is seen and unseen".

:yes:

The key thing is that if you don't believe is that you must not take the Eucharist.

Only being able to remember half the lyrics to songs drives me absolutely mad :mad2:
Most schools purchase plays from producers that have their own composed songs suitable for any particular theme, so an Easter Play would have songs obviously suitable for the Easter story, but not the regular ones we have in hymnals.

To obtain the lyrics you would need to know the title of the performance (play). Maybe you could contact your primary school and they would be able to locate the title if they knew the year the pupils performed it, and then you could track down the lyrics.

I can fully empathise with your 'obsession.' One gets something in one's mind that can't be released unless it's been resolved. Good luck with the hunt!

Thanks! I'm quite excited now. It's my dream to work for CAFOD, so even if it doesn't work out I'm gonna keep trying. I think God wants me to work in the charities sector once I'm a bit more stable healthwise :yep:

Let us know if you get an interview and we'll start a Novena for you...sorry, I shouldn't offer the prayers of all of us, but I know that everyone will be rooting for you.

Quick question, does the church have an official position on the causes of the schism with the east and if so would anyone be so kind as to recommend me either online or book resources explaining it?

I'm currently reading a book by an Orthodox bishop on the matter and don't want my perspective of what happened to be utterly tainted by what I read first.

So I am still a Catholic. :sly: My all time hero was a very famous Catholic Bishop, Charles-Maurice, Prince de Talleyrand. :coma: Who is your favourite historical Catholic?

Are they any negatives to taking it if I don't believe?
