lol no if deej is going to be a priest im sure he didnt resort to the measures i did to find the answer!
on the second point cheers, i was wonderign about that , there just seems to be so few converts! 3!
Ah that table, I thought you were on about on at the back thats used before the offertory, shuld have read the question more carefully.
do you believe in all the saints? i mean im sure some are made up. i read one i think it was Nina of something, who was beheaded and carried her head across the country under her arm! thats quite cool. and some others who had gifts like bi-location and flight.
there was this really cool woman St SYNCLETICA who was a Wealthy Alexandrian lady who abandoned her wealth and lived till age 84 in a tomb. i mean whats so good about that? seems a bit of a waste!
There was a small evening mass the day before (possibly two days before) and they read out the confirmation names - but not in Saint forms - most of them were, i.e. they were read out 'Mark, John, Luke'.
Well, There was a whole procession - because so many people were being confirmed, and all it was - (physically - spiritually of course, it a great deal more amazing) going before the Bishop, knelling (on both knees - I made the mistake in the practice and knelled on one knee and it looked like I was proposing!) and then (it was quite a while ago) the Bishop sort of grabs your shoulders and says something like "Thomas ..." - grabs is a bit of a bad word - sounds like an assault - but its not, lol.
With my confirmation name - I was always going to be a 'Thomas' - it was just a matter of which: Apostle, More, Aquinas etc. But choosing which took some time!
Hi there - just wondering what people think about the idea of Papal infalliability ... I am slightly cautious, as a Historian - History is littered with, what can best be described as 'dodgy' - and I was wondering - if this idea a modern one (i.e. the last 100 years) or has it been around since the Medieval period (I know Catholicism was around in Roman Times, but evidence is so scant, its quite hard to tell anything).
Also - do people think this should be taken with a pinch of salt - in that - can a human really be infallable? (other than Christ and the Virgin Mary) - I do not believe the Pope should/could be compared to the afore mentioned - OR am I getting the wrong end of the stick here?

Rep for the first person to give the correct answer - excluding those who have already been awarded it - to this question;
What is/are the only day/days in the Church year when the Sacramental rites of the Church are not celebrated?
Good Friday and Easter Saturday (excluding the vigil)
Great - that clears things up a bit and makes more sense! Cheers!
