    Hello All... Iím a Catholic, my parents had 7 of us. I loved growing up in a large family and I find that large families are common in our faith. It seems hard(er) to keep family in the faith than it was when I was growing up. Is it just me or does anyone else feel this way? I have three grown kids all say that they are Catholic but do not go to church regularly.

    I'm planning on doing a beauty pageant type contest, folks. It can be called Anti-catholica Fashionistas 2009, the premiere edition.

    Here is my first draft of a possible beauty queens list:


    Anything else??

    But while I can be a blind follower of the Vatican, I'm also a stinging critic of its troubled past. That the papal states went away was good AND bad.

    Would that be a sedevacantist? I've met some of them, they are pretty hardcore and devout. And this is what is bizarre, even I tend to agree a lot with them, though I think I have accepted Vatican II because it's the rightful thing for a catholic to do, follow the Vatican

    Judging from his/her recent thread and a couple of posts I've read, I'd say bellafinzi is a conservative Catholic, of the pre-Vatican II glasnost persuasion. The criticisms are directed more at "modern Catholicism". At those of my ilk, actually.

    Folks, help me decode the bellafinzi character on C/D. What's up with him/her? Is he/she for or against Catholicism? Anyone knows???

    Antlered, I saw your thread that got locked on the religion Forum about a Catholic/Atheist relationship. My opinion, if it matters, is don't do it. In the beginnin it seems like it'll be ok, but once the fuzzy puppy feelings wane you will wonder what you are doing w/ someone who holds such incredibly different beliefs than you. My two cents

    what the heck are people talking about when they talk about occult? seems like it's a growing thing or I just never noticed it before but it seems like a lot of Catholics are talking about Occult which I find really confusing because I looked up Occult and Christianity meets the criteria, I do not mean that mean, I'm just saying, it does. However, what are Catholics referring to? I mean, I just read, 'oh it's so sad, people are turning to the Occult?' lol what is everyone talking about when they talk about the occult or does it differ? Then I read, it could be in reference to Wicca...is this what they are talking about? The definition of Occult is:
    oc∑cult (-klt, klt)adj.1. Of, relating to, or dealing with supernatural influences, agencies, or phenomena.
    2. Beyond the realm of human comprehension; inscrutable.
    3. Available only to the initiate; secret: occult lore. See Synonyms at mysterious.
    4. Hidden from view; concealed.
    5. a. Medicine Detectable only by microscopic examination or chemical analysis, as a minute blood sample.
    b. Not accompanied by readily detectable signs or symptoms: occult carcinoma.

    n. Occult practices or techniques: a student of the occult.

    v. (-klt) oc∑cult∑ed, oc∑cult∑ing, oc∑cults
    v.tr.1. To conceal or cause to disappear from view.
    2. Astronomy To conceal by occultation: The moon occulted Mars.

    v.intr. To become concealed or extinguished at regular intervals: a lighthouse beacon that occults every 45 seconds. -freedictionary.com

    Doesn't God in every religion meet definition number one and two?
