Why not?

It is called mass by the way. And Catholicism is and has always been the one true Church. Read a history book why don't ya?

Is there a problem with it? I'm not sure I understand what problem there could be with it. After all, I've got "Podcasts" of the Rosary on my iPod. It's great for when I'm at work, or in the car, or whatever. And with my job, I can't make Mass every Sunday, so I go every other Sunday. This would actually help out a little with my schedule.

Here's to enforcing Sunday worship, then again that may not be a bad thing since most of you attend anyway. The only difference now is, it will be done the Catholic Church's way.

Right on time for February 2009, Got your converters yet? Think it's a coincidence? Think again...........................Pope Benedict the next YouTube star? | Digital Media - CNET News




Ps: Pardon the typo, meant to be Church instead of churce.
I am sure you are a nice person, but can you put the keyboard down and slowly back away?

So is the Pope the anti-Christ? Why don't you spit out what you mean? We Catholics are a little confused.

The thread was started for opinions and insights, not insults. Does your bible says your Pope is the Anti-Christ? Don't put words in my mouth. I'm bold enough to say what is needed to be said.

Okay, then what is your point of the thread because I for one have no idea. And if we Catholics are to record a cogent response to your thread, we must have the point of your argument. That's how dialogue works. If your comment is rhetorical or a monologue, then please make that clear when you start the thread and it will quickly disappear into the abyss of threads.

Oh, by the way, my Bible is THE Bible. If you have a King James, then you have the excerpt. ...but that is getting off topic, isn't it?

Some say it because they're losing their target audience, the young people.
