    When I made my first communion the priest at the time was a member of a Discalced order. The only people who can wear socks with sandals without committing a heinous fashion faux pas.

    Haha, silly TSR, not sending the message :shakecane:

    Carmelites are AWESOME! I wanted to be one, until various people pointed out that it's probably not my calling in life

    Today is the feast of Blessed John Paul II. Seems strange to be having a feast day for someone all of us remember, and maybe even some may have seen. My aunt even met him.

    Shared this over on X-soc, but figure it'll be of more use over here:
    A friend linked me to a wonderful website for novenas where you can sign up to e-mails where they send you out a reminder each day, which includes the prayer. Really useful, I'm terrible at wanting to do them and forgetting... :erm:

    Anyways, here you are: http://www.praymorenovenas.com/st-jude-novena/

    Current one is a novena to St. Jude - the patron saint of lost (/impossible) causes. Suggested intention is for the unemployed.
    Anyways, thought I'd share.

    Also, I've just realised that today was the last youbelieve. Dratification
    (youbelieve = a series of monthly evening talks relating to the year of faith in Westminster.)
    I've been unable to go to so many of them that I really wanted to go to this one :sad:

    Not sure if this is the right place to post, maybe i need a separate thread but I'm considering this as research for my first essay for uni. Are there any Catholics who still choose not to eat meat on fridays? Since 1966 it wasn't required anymore (according to my lecturers powerpoint) but I'm curious to see if some still don't. Also how many choose not to eat meat on fridays during Lent?

    I bet you could find plenty of older people who continue this practice, on Catholic Answers Forums. Lots of older Americans there who take the old practices very seriously indeed :yes:

    This was got rid of, but came back a couple of years ago, so it's now required again. Consequently, I don't.
    (most of the time anyway. I've forgotten one or twice - also, you don't need to if it's a solemnity)

    Additionally, it wasn't required, but you were supposed to do some other form of penance on the Friday.

    Also doesn't apply if you're ill, so TLG, you're off the hook!

    There was a request by the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales to revive the tradition of not eating meat on Fridays, made one year after Pope Benedict visited. It is in a sense a revival of the practice ended in 1966 (time of the Second Vatican Council). I have no idea if it has been widely adopted or not.

    On a separate note, I think the Pope has acted correctly about the Limburg bishop who has been extfavagant.

    Is this society for sincere Roman Catholics who live their lives by the faith? Or people who went to "Catholic" schools?

    Mostly the former, though I guess if the latter wanted to hang around that'd be okay

    Ooh, y'know, I'd completely forgotten about the groups thingy on here until I had a notification telling me there was a join group request (which I can do nothing about, and therefore am not going to lose the notification... )

    Heyo,
    Noticed you've not posted for a while on this site at all, and that there are quite a few join requests.

    I don't know whether the groups are actually useful for anything, but it might be worth looking at sorting it out again?
    If no reply, I guess maybe we should ask the mods to transfer group leaderness. What do peeps think?
