The Free Republic Catholic Caucus
BaBaStooey

Posted on 10/15/2001 5:10:15 PM PDT by BaBaStooey

Hey no-meat-eaters-on-Fridays-during-Lent!



There are a ton of us Catholic Freepers out there, this is our little thread in the big big world. This is just my way of attempting to get to know people just like me.

A few links I enjoy:

www.vatican.va - the Holiest Web Site on Earth
www.scripturecatholic.com - providing Scripture references to support the teachings of the faith

And lastly, I post a joke I once heard on Free Republic:

What is the difference between a Catholic and a Protestant? Catholics wave to each other in the liqour store.

Poland: Still the World's Most Catholic Country

Canadian Cable TV offers homosexual channel, not EWTN

This day in History - On October 16, 1978, the College of Cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church chose Cardinal Karol Wojtyla of Poland to be the new pope; he took the name John Paul II.

God Bless you, il papa!

What? You mean you're allowed to eat meat at all during Lent?

You Latin types got it too easy!

And a ping to some interested parties.

Northwest Ohio Catholic Bump.

Ours is a parish from the Land of the Cross-Tipped Churches, a name which becomes obvious as you motor through this part of the State. The Fathers and Sisters of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood have served our parish since 1848, God Bless them!

Patent's got a big ole Catholic distribution list.

As a Catholic, I make sure to invite at least two Baptists to go with me when I go fishing.

If I invite just one, he'll drink all the beer.

An Aquinas fan.... Tomas Aquinas kicked my rear in seminary. I will admit that he wasn't as bad a K. Rahner. Loved Aquinas' logic on the assassination of leaders as the greatest good.

A funny story.....

I was sitting in a college computer lab last Ash Wednesday when I overheard some girls talking.

Girl 1: "Hey, today's Ash Wednesday."
Girl 2: "It is?"
Girl 3: "Oh no, I ate chicken for lunch!
Girl 2: "Remember, no sex tonight."
Girl 3: "Oh yeah. Man, I hate that!"

I don't think I can stop laughing, even thinking about it today. Fast and Abstinence means fast, and abstain from meat, not sex. Of course, good Catholics remember that no-sex-before-marriage stuff.

This day in History - On October 16, 1978, the College of Cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church chose Cardinal Karol Wojtyla of Poland to be the new pope; he took the name John Paul II.

I remember that day. I was in 6th grade and Sister Louise took our class (about 15 kids - that was the size of the entire 6th grade) over to the convent to watch it on TV. She was also the principal of the school, so we had "pull" on those kinds of things.

While I can't say I'm a Catholic, I can say Catholic thought has taught me much, which I heartily recommend to everyone. Here are some fine sources on the web for elements of this impressive and lively body of conservative thought -

Church Fathers and Christian Classics
The Catholic Encyclopedia
GK Chesterton on the web
A book list at the Acton Institute
First Things online

For those not previously familiar with the above sources, I think you will find an undiscovered continent there. I doubt anyone here has exhausted them, and I certainly haven't. I hope they are interesting.
